Priscilla Kim of Reading was selected to be a Presidential Fellow for the 2017-18 academic year at Susquehanna University.
Each year, approximately 20 sophomore students are selected to be Presidential Fellows. Deans and department heads nominate students they feel have the academic ability, enthusiasm and interest to benefit from co-curricular discussions of literature, theater and current events.
During the course of the year, the fellows are assigned two books to read and then discuss with University President Jonathan D. Green and other selected faculty and staff. The experience culminates in a trip, usually to New York City or Washington, D.C., to attend a theater production and perhaps interact with an author or artist.
Kim is an accounting major in the class of 2020. A 2016 graduate of Exeter Township High School, she is the daughter of Joshua and Chung Kim.
