    The Rhodes Scholarship selection process highly values academic excellence, social impact, commitment to effecting positive change, and a heightened awareness of societal inequities. Calvin's journey to finalist status attests to his embodiment of these criteria and signals his commitment to leadership and service.

    In a recent announcement, this year's cohort of Rhodes Scholars was described as 32 individuals who inspire through their achievements and values-based leadership. The Rhodes Scholarship, founded in 1902 by the visionary Cecil Rhodes, is one of the most prestigious accolades attainable by American college graduates. Calvin Bell III now joins an exclusive community of scholars set to pursue graduate degrees at the University of Oxford, commencing in October 2024.

    As Calvin prepares for this extraordinary academic pursuit, Morehouse College extends heartfelt congratulations. The entire college community eagerly awaits the positive impact Calvin will undoubtedly make at the University of Oxford and in the broader global arena.

    Congratulations, Calvin!
