Kendrick finalist for Rhodes Scholarship, will miss NCAAs

Post by Stonehouse on Tue Nov 15, 2016 4:25 pm

HUGE congrats to Parkes Kendrick, who is a finalist for a Rhodes Scholarship: http://portlandpilots.com/news/2016/11/15/womens-cross-country-kendrick-a-finalist-for-rhodes-scholarship.aspx

But unfortunately, her interview is taking place this weekend in Seattle, forcing her to miss the NCAA championships. That's a big blow to the team, as Parkes has consistently been one of the team's top runners. And it's really a bummer too, since this is the first time the women have ever made the NCAAs and with a full squad they had a chance at making a really strong showing. Hopefully the rest of the team can step up and deliver.

Wish there was something the Rhodes Scholarship committee could do to allow her to compete. Sad

Side note: This is an *extremely* prestigious scholarship. Former soccer player Jessica Tsao was also a Rhodes finalist a few years ago, and I believe she was the first UP student to be a finalist in many, many years.

I did not see Parkes' name on the list of this year's 32 Rhodes Scholarship recipients from the US....

Regardless, Parkes is a brilliant, kind, giving, and popular young woman who will certainly garner a scholarship somewhere upon her graduation, and will go on to do wonderful things in the world.

She is amazingly talented... too bad the 2 huge events overlapped. It had to be hard missing the meet with her team!
