Rhodes winners

    Officials announced the prestigious Rhodes Scholarship recipients winners Sunday, and we in the Delaware Valley should be proud: Five area college students are among the winners. 

    Some information on the locals from the Philadelphia Inquirer:

    “Aakash Shah, a graduate of Ursinus College, Matthew Watters, a senior at the University of Delaware, and Andrew Lanham, a graduate of Haverford College, will all study at the University of Oxford in England. Joining them will be Mark Jia, a graduate of Princeton University and Nicholas DiBernadino, a senior at Princeton.”
