College senior John Henderson was one of 32 American students selected as Rhodes Scholars in December. A political science major with a focus on Latin American politics, Henderson also is an avid musician and plays in a folk-rock group, the whelks. “I use music, alongside a commitment to activism and scholarship, to uplift the downtrodden and tell silenced stories,” he said. Henderson is Emory’s 17th Rhodes Scholar and the
second in four years. Photo by Jon Rou.
