Montana State University’s Honors College will host a panel discussion with six winners of the Truman Scholarship from noon to 1 pm on Wednesday, Dec. 5 in the Procrastinator Theater of MSU’s Strand Union Building.
Named after the United States’ third-third president, Harry S. Truman, the highly competitive and prestigious scholarship is given to one college junior from each state who has demonstrated leadership potential and commitment to public service.
The panel will feature current students and MSU alumni who won the award as undergraduates: 2015 recipients Alex Paterson, who majored in economics, and Cara Thuringer, who double majored in liberal studies and photography; 2016 recipient Levi Birky, who majored in broad field social studies; and 2018 recipients Haley Cox, currently double majoring in cell biology and neuroscience and liberal studies, and Connor Hoffmann, currently triple majoring chemical engineering, biological engineering and in directed interdisciplinary studies. The panel will also include Zach Brown, a Bozeman resident and state legislator who won the Truman while an undergraduate at the University of Montana.
The scholars will make brief presentations followed by Q&A from the audience.
