Highlighting our Grads: Senior selected for scholarship in Bulgaria

UT senior Avery Dobbs was chosen as a recipient for the Fulbright International Scholarship, where she will teach English as a second language to high school students in Bulgaria for an academic year. When asked what made Dobbs want to apply for this scholarship, Dobbs said that working with “multi-cultural communities” is something she has always been interested in.
