A Message from Class President Mike Southwell

The 2019 Sachs Scholars have been announced; they are Tylor-Maria Johnson and Emily Geyman, along with Molly Daunt who will be coming to Princeton from Worcester College, Oxford. The University's announcement is here . Here is biographical information provided by the Sachs Scholarship Comittee:
Tylor-Maria Johnson, of Brooklyn, New York, is a senior in the Sociology Department and is completing certificates in African American Studies and American Studies. At Oxford, Tylor-Maria will read for the MSc in Refugee and Forced Migration Studies and a MSc in Evidence Based Social Intervention and Policy Evaluation in preparation for a future in law and community advocacy. Her desire to pursue a career in this field has been shaped by transformative internships at the Harlem Community Justice Center, the European Roma Rights Centre, and the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights -- the last of these as a 2018 Scholar in the Nation’s Service (SINSI). On campus, Tylor-Maria has established herself as a community builder, not only as president of the Black Student Union and president of the Princeton University Gospel Ensemble but as a Residential College Adviser at Whitman College. A proud alumna of the Freshman Scholars Institute, Tylor-Maria is an active participant and leader in the Scholars Institute Fellows Program, which supports first-generation and/or low-income (FLI) students.
Emily Geyman ’19, of Seattle, Washington, is a senior in the Geosciences Department and will use her Global Scholarship to pursue a year-long study in glaciology and permafrost research in Arctic Norway to better understand the role of ice in climate change. She plans to pursue an academic career in Earth Science with a commitment to improve communication to the public concerning climate conditions. A champion of the integrated sciences curriculum and a teaching assistant for three undergraduate courses in the Geosciences Department, Emily has served the Princeton community as a peer mentor and an engaged citizen of the sciences. Her academic accolades include the Benjamin F. Howell Class of 1913 Junior Prize and the Shapiro Prize for Academic Excellence. Outside the lab, Emily can be found leading Outdoor Action trips, working at the Climbing Wall as an instructor, and running in preparation for an ultra-marathon.
Molly Daunt, of London, England, is in her final year at Worcester College, Oxford, where she is reading for a B.A. in Classics. At Princeton, Molly intends to study Classics as a Visiting Student in the Graduate School, with a particular interest in the Program in the Ancient World. Molly comes with significant experience on archeological digs in Turkey and Sicily, where she was involved in the discovery of a Temple of Apollo. She has worked in the Ashmolean Museum as a Krasis Scholar and hopes to pursue a career in the curation and direction of museums. In her free time, Molly has served in crisis centers in Nairobi and Durban and has trekked solo through parts of Africa and the Middle East. She also plays on the Oxford University Tennis Team and is Captain of the Worcester Tennis Team.
