Wellington student takes highly-selective job position within the US-UK Fulbright Commission

27th April 2018 in Success

Wellington pupil, Darren McCarroll, has been selected as a Team Leader within the US-UK Fulbright Commission. This follows on from his continuous involvement with the Sutton Trust US programme, which resulted in his admittance to the University of Richmond as a Presidential Scholar last December. (See: Our previous news item)

The Team Leader role involves coaching and mentoring Year 13 students from all over the U.K. who aim to follow the same path as Darren and gain admittance to a U.S. College despite their low socio-economic status. Doing so entails two residentials in London and a week-long residential in the USA, in which Darren will test his leadership skills as he mentors his teams abroad.
