The three finalists for this year's Global Citizenship Award—Shahar Eberzhon '12, Erica Martinez '12, and Diego Melo '12—presented their views on global citizenship to students and faculty. The Institute for Global Citizenship annually recognizes the graduating senior who best exemplifies a commitment to the ideals and practices of outstanding academic achievement, internationalism, multiculturalism, civic engagement, and leadership. Sociology major Shahar Eberzhon was granted the award the following week.
Both Eberzhon and Melo are among Macalester's Davis United World College Scholars.
