Cassidy Jones, a fresh Westminster College graduate, has won a Fulbright grant to teach English in Turkey.
Jones, an honors student majoring in English, spent last summer in Madagascar, the large island off Africa's east coast, researching environmental themes in oral folklore. The experience inspired her to apply for an English Teaching Assistantship under the Fulbright Scholars Program.
"It's something that's perfectly suited to me and my interests. I studied in Madagascar last spring and it rocked my world," Jones said in a news release. "I realized that this is what I wanted to do. I wanted to go abroad."
