A Mount Pearl man studying at McGill Univeristy in Quebec has been named the province's newest Rhodes Scholar.
Stephen Alyward, 21, is a philosophy major, and he is minoring in political science at McGill.
Also an accomplished singer and musician, Aylward has served on the executive of the McGill Debating Union and competed in tournaments. He is also a disciplined athlete and a committed volunteer who has been involved with Amnesty International for many years.
"I have a vision and passion for justice and service," Aylward said in a new release. "I'm dedicated to the principles of human rights and I want to continue to focus on that."
Aylward plans to pursue a bachelor's degree in law at Oxford and hopes to build a career in immigration law.
The Rhodes Scholarships, established in 1902, is given to students who have achieved high academic standing and who have demonstrated respect for their fellows, an unselfish spirit and the potential for leadership.
