Congratulations to Jean Laschever, who just won a Fulbright grant. She’s graduating from Pacific University in Oregon this year and plans to go to India to study HIV and AIDS.
Jean spent four years at MIHS and didn’t waste much time. She won twelve varsity letters which only four students have done since 2000, according to the MI Reporter. That means she has to play a varsity sport every season for each of her four years. One of those sports was wrestling, and back in ’04 the Seattle Times wrote that Jean won a critical match to help MI beat Liberty and go on to the conference championship.
She obviously distinguished herself academically as well at Pacific to win the Fullbright. Good luck in India Jean and congratulations!
