An Augustana College senior who already has seen a good chunk of the world will be seeing some more after earning a scholarship that will take her to England.

Queenie Ho, a double major in anthropology and biology at Augustana, hasreceived the $50,000 Davies-Jackson Scholarship, which will cover fees, expenses and room and board while she pursues her graduate studies at the University of Cambridge's St. John's College, according to an Augustana news release.

Ms. Ho was born in Hong Kong, but her family moved to Guam when she was young. When she was a teen, the family moved to Illinois.
