A Message from Class President Bob Briggs

[President Bob Briggs] Welcome to the Class website.

Its content is constantly changing so please access it frequently and help us by supplying photos and items of interest that concern our Class. Its value is enhanced by your ideas and participation.

The 2021 Sachs Scholars have been announced: Aisha Tahir ’21, Jimin Kang ’21, and Hannah Duffus from Worcester College, Oxford. As usual, the Scholars have jaw-dropping accomplishments already and even bigger plans for the future.

From the announcement email: “Aisha plans to take her mighty pen and journalistic ambitions to South Asia, where she will report on multi-generational feminism before heading off for formal study at SOAS in London. . . . She is, among many other things, one of the very few Muslim students in the world ever to have interned for the Jewish Daily Forward. . . .

Jimin . . . promises to combine an extraordinary talent for journalism with a passion for the environment. As our Worcester Scholar, she proposes to pursue master’s degrees in both comparative literature and environmental management. An academic superstar with a clutch of prizes to her name, Jimin has been a campus leader through both her service work and her journalism. She also happens to be both a championship debater and a championship belly dancer. . . .

Hannah Duffus, a graduate of Monash University in Australia and currently a Provost’s Scholar at Worcester, will explore wildfire literatures of the American West as a student of the environmental humanities at the Princeton Graduate School. . . .She knows more about supervising a blueberry farm than the rest of us put together.”
