There may still be hope for the country.
Being a college student is tough enough.
Imagine trying to keep up your grades while starting for the Michigan State women’s soccer team.
Sarah Kovan has done that extremely well.
Kovan, 21, is working on bachelor’s degrees in comparative cultures and politics and in human biology and was recently named a Rhodes Scholar, an achievement so rare, the school says she’s only the 17th at MSU since 1904. The award pays for Kovan to attend graduate school at the University of Oxford in England.
