Jared Russell to represent D5470 as District Global Grant Scholar for the 2020-2021 school year

Jared, born and raised in Pueblo, CO, graduated in 2014 from Pueblo South High School as valedictorian. He received a Boettcher Scholarship to attend Colorado College, majoring in Political Science and Philosophy with a minor in Music. He graduated with honors from Colorado College in May 2018, then returned to Catholic Charities in Pueblo to continue his work helping individuals file DACA, citizenship and status application adjustments.
In February 2019, Jared traveled to Australia to undertake a Master’s of Public Policy at the University of Melbourne after he received a Fulbright Scholarship. While there Jared founded and served as Director of the Ormond Law and Policy Research Clinic, the largest student-driven organization studying refugee rights in the world. As a student, Jared received the highest marks in both his degree program and the School of Social and Political Sciences.
He will enroll at Oxford University in September 2020 to continue his studies in their Department of International Development with the support of a Global Grant Scholarship. Jared will be hosted by the Rotary Club of Oxford North, and is excited to engage with Rotarians abroad.
District 5470 is honored to have Jared representing our District at Oxford.
