Rotary Youth Exchange, District 7770, is pleased to announce that Lizzie Russler has been awarded the prestigious Morehead-Cain Scholarship at the University of North Carolina! The Morehead-Cain Scholarship is one of the oldest and most distinguished merit scholarships in the nation. Students from all around the world compete to earn a four year and full ride to the University of North Carolina. Also, there are generous stipends for summer travel, research, internship opportunities, and entrée into the elite Morehead network.
Lizzie is a Rotary Youth Exchange Alumnus. She was able to go to Switzerland for her exchange in 2013-2014. We would like to thank Charleston Breakfast Rotary Club for sponsoring Lizzie when she was on her exchange. Below is a picture of Lizzie and her wonderful parents. We are very proud of what Lizzie has accomplished thus far and can’t wait to see what the University of North Carolina has in store for her!
