Just days after being named
Mr. Mountaineer, a competitive award that recognizes exemplary academic achievement

finalist for the prestigious British Marshall Scholarship.
Marshall Scholarships offer up to 40 young Americans of high ability the opportunity to study for a graduate degree in the United Kingdom. Burgess will interview for one of the coveted spots Nov. 13.
