Richland Man Earns Scholarship to the University of Oxford

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, WA - A Richland man is one of 32 Rhodes Scholars from the United States this year. Andrew Lea is studying history and science at Harvard.

According to the Associated Press, his academic focus is the social and ethical implications of science and medicine. 

Lea is one of four northwest natives to earn the honor. Two others are from Bainbridge Island and Lake Forest Park, Washington. A Eugene, Oregon man is the other. 

The Rhodes Trust website says the 32 scholars were nominated for their leadership potential, character and commitment to the common good. 

The 32 students will attend the University of Oxford in England next October with all expenses paid for up to four years.
