Truman taps student

Aubrey L. Gilbert, a third-year degree candidate from Charleston, S.C., has been chosen as one of 61 Truman Scholars for 2000. The scholars, selected from 599 nominated juniors nationwide, receive $30,000 scholarships toward completing their undergraduate education and two or three years of graduate study.

Gilbert, a champion of environmental causes, has been active in teaching and mentoring local students in science. She is completing two undergraduate theses, one in biology and another in a self-designed interdisciplinary field spanning anthropology, philosophy, English, biochemistry and environmental science.

Truman Scholars are selected on the basis of leadership potential, intellectual ability and the likelihood of "making a difference." Congress established the Truman Scholarship Foundation in 1975 to honor the nation's 33rd president.
