Jefferson Scholarship: Leah W. '22
Congratulations to Leah W. '22, who was awarded the Jefferson Scholarship to the University of Virginia. Each year, fewer than 50 students are selected from among 2,000+ nominees worldwide.
One of the most prestigious undergraduate scholarships, the Jefferson is "awarded to individuals who have undergone a rigorous selection process and who possess an exceptional record of accomplishment both inside and outside the classroom."
A resident of Upper Marlboro, MD, Leah came to Burke in 9th grade and served as Co-President of the Student Government Association (SGA) in 2021-22. A deeply engaged community member, accomplished student, and always positive presence, Leah will be greatly missed next fall.
