Class of 2015
Hometown: Greenville, South Carolina
It's not every day that winning the Harry B. Shucker Outstanding Student Leader Award isn't atop a student's list of senior accomplishments, but not every student is Natalia Arenas, who recently learned she will be teaching English in Taiwan as a Fulbright Scholar to cap four years of remarkable accomplishment at a school she admits she initially didn't want to attend after growing up in Greenville. "I've dug into the things that have given so much to me," she says. "I wanted to give back to other people and have them receive what I've received, which sounds cheesy but that's honestly the only reason." When Arenas returns to the U.S. she hopes to keep leading and giving with a career in foreign policy.
