Ava Rockefeller Campbell of Bainbridge High has been chosen for the Washington World Fellows 2019 cohort.

Lieutenant Governor Cyrus Habib announced the selections late last week.

This year’s winners were picked from nearly 200 nominees from throughout the state. To be considered for the program, students had to be nominated by a teacher or school counselor, and complete a rigorous application process that includes written essays, a personal interview, and a video submission.

Campbell is a member of the National Honors Society, is a theater technician for her high school drama club, and enjoys volunteering in her community. She says she is excited to study abroad and fulfill a lifelong dream to travel to Spain.

She wants to utilize the program’s college preparation services to achieve her goal of bachelor’s degree in history, and a master’s degree in library sciences.

The fellowship provides students with a study abroad experience in León, Spain during the summer between grades 10 and 11, followed by two years of college readiness and leadership development programming.

The Washington World Fellows program was created by the office of Lt. Governor Habib in 2018, and is part of the office’s larger goal of expanding opportunities in higher education throughout Washington.
