BB&N Alumna Named Rhodes Scholar

By BB&N November 14, 2022

BB&N alumna Tessa Haining ’19 has been awarded the incredible distinction of Rhodes Scholar by the Rhodes Trust’s Office of the American Secretary. In an announcement this October, Haining, a senior at Harvard University, was named as one of 32 students to receive the honor which provides all expenses for two to three years of study at the University of Oxford in England.

A recent story in The Boston Globe covered Haning’s achievement:

“Haining, from Newton, is majoring in chemistry and comparative literature…. She is a varsity athlete on the heavyweight rowing team and a violinist and production manager for Harvard’s student-run orchestra. As co-director of the Harvard Eating Concerns Hotline and Outreach, she helped expand the program’s reach on campus and serves as a peer counselor. At Oxford, Haining will pursue a master’s degree in history of science, medicine, and technology…”

Haining becomes the ninth BB&N graduate in history to receive Rhodes Scholar distinction.
