McCallie School's Wilson Randle was awarded a National Security Language Initiative for Youth Scholarship and will study Chinese in China this summer.
Wilson, a 2014 McCallie graduate, will attend the University of Southern California this coming school year. A day student from Chattanooga, he is the son of Daniel and Carol Randle.
“Wilson is an outstanding student in the classroom,” McCallie's Upper School Chinese teacher Marcus Murphy said. “But what sets him apart is the fact that he is one of the only students who consistently engaged our native Chinese speakers outside the classroom. He was always involved in Chinese Club activities.”
The NSLI-Y program is funded by the U.
S. Department of State and provides merit-based scholarships for eligible high school students to learn less commonly-taught languages in summer and academic-year overseas immersion programs.
