International Studies Scholars Alum Named Student Speaker for Winter Commencement

The University of Maryland (UMD) has announced its student speaker for its Winter 2021 Commencement: Kiara Anthony, an alum of the International Studies Scholars program.

Anthony, a government and politics major, boasts a diverse array of experiences from across campus, from being a member of the UMD equestrian team to co-chairing the University Student Judiciary and more. She also reportedly likes to consider issues from a global, interconnected perspective—something she no doubt became good at doing during her time in International Studies Scholars.

The Scholars alum hopes to attend law school after graduation and use her skills to support the Black community.
