Augsburg student named first Rhodes Scholar

The Star Tribune has reported that Brian Krohn, a senior chemistry major at Augsburg College, was named a Rhodes Scholar Saturday.

Krohn, 22, is a part of 32 Americans chosen for the honor. He plans to go for a master's of science in environmental change and management at Oxford University in England.

"A very normal person is a good way to describe me," he said about himself Sunday. He has worked together will veteran scientists to alter the production of biodiesel so waste is not created.

WCCO reported that Krohn is one of two students at Minnesota schools to win the award this year.
