| No Comments

Two Minnesotans were named Rhodes Scholars on Sunday, AP reported. They are among 32 other students who received the honor this year.

Clayton Aldern, who hails from Cedar, Minn., is a neuroscience major at Brown University and Georgianna Whiteley, from Wayzata, Minn. is a chemistry major at Luther College.

According to the Rhodes Trust website, scholars are chosen "not only for their outstanding scholarly achievements, but for their character, commitment to others and to the common good, and for their potential for leadership in whatever domains their careers may lead."

The University of Minnesota-Twin Cities has had seven Rhodes Scholars since 2001, according to a release on the school's website.
