Baker Scholars announced



Six undergraduates and four graduate students have been selected as the 2006 class of Baker Scholars at the University of Tennessee.

“Each year, the Baker Center seeks out UT’s brightest and most engaged students to honor as Baker Scholars. These students, drawn from a range of academic disciplines, are active, highly motivated and forward-looking members of the university community,” said Alan Lowe, director of the Howard Baker Jr. Center for Public Policy.

Now in its third year, the title of Baker Scholar has grown to become one of the premier honors conferred upon students of public policy at the University of Tennessee.

The 2006 Baker Scholars are:

• Brock Bosson, graduate student, law, Knoxville

• Jamie Clariday, graduate student, law, Mt. Juliet

• Matthew Kroplin, graduate student, public administration, Franklin

• Chris Lewis, doctoral student, political science, Knoxville

• Michael Lumley, freshman, economics and philosophy, Nashville

• Eric Maudlin, sophomore, political science and philosophy, Hendersonville

• Amit Patel, junior, political science and legal studies, Lafollette

• Ben Signer, sophomore, public administration, Farragut

• Georgia Varlan, freshman, political science and history, Knoxville

• Nathan Zipper, junior, political science, Springfield

Baker Scholars have one-on-one meetings with featured speakers at Baker Center events and help Center directors plan conferences, such as the upcoming British-American conference that will feature notable speakers including Winston S. Churchill and Henry Kissinger. They also are frequent guests of local organizations, including the East Tennessee Economic Council, and are honored at an annual dinner hosted by UT.
