League Members: Truman Scholar Recipient and Nominee

April 15, 2018

 Congratulations to Jaz Brisack who was named a Truman Scholar on Wednesday, April 11, in a ceremony at the Lyceum.  Jaz was one of three finalists at the University of Mississippi, two of whom are members of League of Women Voters Oxford/North Mississippi. 














Our other member who was a finalist is Jarvis Benson. 



The Truman Scholarship is the premier graduate fellowship in the United States for those pursuing careers as public service leaders.  


“To have three of our four institutional nominees named as finalists is really amazing,” Dolan said. “For their final selection, the Truman Foundation will award one scholarship per state.”

Students selected as Truman Scholars are invited to participate in the Truman Washington Summer Institute following their junior year to deepen their understanding of the national policy-making process.
