Rim High grad nominated for Mitchell scholarship

Michigan State University has nominated seven undergraduate students and one alumnus for nationally competitive graduate school scholarships: the Churchill, Marshall, Mitchell, and Rhodes scholarships.
The scholarships support students attending graduate school in the United Kingdom or Ireland. The results of these competitions will be determined in the coming months.
Among the students nominated is Macken Keefe, a graduate of Rim of the World High School.
Keefe, an Honors College senior majoring in political science and the joint Master of Public Policy degree in the College of Social Science, has been nominated for a George J. Mitchell scholarship. This program, established by the US-Ireland Alliance, allows up to 12 future American leaders to pursue a year of graduate study in Ireland and Northern Ireland.
The scholarship was named to honor former U.S. Senator George Mitchell’s pivotal contribution
to the Northern Ireland peace process. It is designed to introduce and connect generations of future American leaders to the island of Ireland while recognizing and fostering intellectual achievement, leadership, and a commitment to community and public service.
