Teresa Danso-Danquah ’15 has been named one of 59 scholars selected by the Harry S. Truman Scholarship Foundation — an organization that seeks to support young Americans committed to public service.

Danso-Danquah, an Industrial and Labor Relations student, is the 25th Truman Scholar from Cornell and the first from Cornell to represent Virginia. According to Danso-Danquah, after being initially endorsed by the University in December, she had to go through several rounds of interviews and applications before being named as a scholar.

“The preparation process has been a true reward for me, for it has been during this time that I’ve been able to reflect on all that I have been blessed to have and been a part of in my time at Cornell and prior to,” she said.

According to Danso-Danquah, her Cornell experience has aligned greatly with her preparation for being a Truman scholar.
