The Emory Alumni Board Leadership Scholarship was created in 2007 to recognize students whose actions, beliefs, and passion have improved the community in the arts or sciences, in academics or extracurricular pursuits, or through mentorship, social outreach, or other avenues. 

This year’s recipients include Lori Gosselin 16PH, a member of the Theta Alpha Kappa Honor Society and actively collaborates with El Refugio, a hospitality house for families of detainees in Lumpkin, facilitating humanitarian visits with immigrants detained at Stewart Detention Center whose families or friends cannot visit.  

Jessica Turner 16T is a leader of the
Candler Committee on Race Equality (core), and was the principal organizer of the “die-in” on campus to draw awareness to issues of racial justice in policing and law enforcement.  

Viktoriya Seredyuk 15OX 17C, a native of Lviv, Ukraine, served as Volunteer Oxford Project Coordinator for Hunger and Homelessness, and in March 2014, helped orchestrate an interfaith vigil for the people of Ukraine.
