Osa Fredrick ’18 ended the school week on a high note.
James Behrer of International University Alliance surprised Fredrick during his French class on Friday with a U.S. News Global Education International Scholarship. Fredrick was one of five scholarship contest winners and will receive full first-year tuition to Louisiana State University.
LSU has one of the top petroleum engineering programs in the nation. Fredrick plans on majoring in that area of study.
Fredrick, who is from Nigeria, won the contest which was for international high school seniors studying at United States high schools. He will be honored in November at a ceremony at U.S. News & World Report headquarters.
“Osa is a wonderful representative of his family and our community,” said Madeline Bergstrom, Senior Associate Director of College Counseling at Cheshire Academy. “A campus leader and a kind, caring, and intelligent young man, we are so proud of his accomplishments. It’s been a pleasure working with him as his college counselor, and I can’t wait to see what his future holds.”
