  • Jade Edmonds, senior in environmental engineering. In July, she will graduate with a biological system engineering degree under the environmental option, and with a secondary major in natural resources and environmental sciences.
  • Jill Applegate, senior in political science, Spanish and international studies. She is particularly interested in the challenges facing Central American youth and the problem of unaccompanied migration to the U.S.
  • Roxanne Bunnell, senior in economics. She has worked as a civilian contractor in Iraq with the State Department, and has researched education systems in Latin America.
  • Robert Adams, graduate student in political science and international relations. He is currently interning with the State Department's Center for Strategic Counterterrorism working on its Southeast Asia Social Media Project.
  • Joab Omondi Esamwata is a Kenyan National and Fulbright scholar at K-State. He is currently studying for his doctorate in sociology with a focus on international development.
