COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - A senior at the University of South Carolina is among the 32 American men and women chosen as Rhodes Scholars.

Among the 2017 recipients announced Sunday is Jory M. Fleming, who is double-majoring in geography and marine science.

Fleming’s biography lists his interests as three-dimensional mapping and data visualizations related to sea level rise, aquatic habitat, and underwater archaeology. He has worked on funded research projects for NOAA, the National Park Service, and National Geographic.

He has a perfect academic record and has received numerous fellowships and awards, including the Truman Scholarship and the Goldwater Scholarship. His extracurricular interests include training service dogs, volunteering for a child literacy program, and church activities.

At Oxford, Fleming will pursue a master of philosophy degree in geography and the environment.
