Bobby Jones scholars off to Scotland
The 2006 Robert T. Jones Jr. scholars—Patrick Mayne 06C, Ruth Vaughn 06C, Bennett Hilley 06C, and Eric Teasdale 06C (left to right)—are headed to Emory’s sister university in the fall for a year of study at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland.
Mayne is an international studies and music major from Marietta, Georgia, who plans to earn a master’s degree in health and human geography. An accomplished tuba player, he has participated in several Emory music ensembles and works closely with the Atlanta Youth Wind Ensemble.
Vaughn, a religion major from Memphis, Tennessee, (as well as former Emory President James Laney’s granddaughter), plans to study at St. Andrews’ School of Divinity and School of International Relations to pursue an interest in how religion influences international relations. She was president of RACES at Emory, a student organization that promotes dialogue about race issues between different cultural groups on campus.
Hilley, a Spanish and art history major from Atlanta, plans to pursue a master’s degree in art history or museum and gallery studies. She has been an intern at The Carter Center and the Latin American Association in Atlanta, where she taught English to adults.
Teasdale, a political science major from Penacook, New Hampshire, will work toward a master’s degree in international security studies. He organized an annual sandwich-making drive at Emory for the Atlanta Food Bank.
Four St. Andrews students will also be spending a year at Emory.—M.J.L.
