Wiltonians named St. Luke’s Scholars
Wiltonians Becca Leonard, Bailey Vehslage, Henry Vehslage and Skye Anderson were among the 20 seniors at St. Luke’s School in New Canaan who shared their final Scholars Program presentations during the annual Scholars Symposium on April 14.
The Scholars Program is a year-long, interdisciplinary research project that earns participating students honors distinction.
Throughout the year, faculty advisers work with each student on his or her project in one of three areas — classical, global or STEM (science, technology, engineering and math).
The four Wiltonians were named Global Scholars, which means they each completed in-depth analysis of a global issue, extensive language study and an interdisciplinary capstone project. Their projects were as follows:
- Becca — Gender, Culture, and Women's Health: A Look Into India, Senegal, and Colombia.
- Bailey — Modern Slavery: The Kafala System and The Migrant Workers' Rights Crisis in The Persian Gulf Region.
- Henry — Population Aging: Causes and Effects on Global Healthcare.
- Skye — The International Oil Conflict: A Relationship Between Developed Nations' Involvement and the Fragility of a Nation.
