Villanova Presidential Scholar Stephen Sechler selected as 2016 Mitchell Scholar!
Presidential Scholar, Stephen Sechler (B.S. Electrical Engineering), was selected as a 2016 George J Mitchell Scholar. The Mitchell Scholarship honors Sen George Mitchell for his work in negotiating peace in Northern Ireland, and it is among the most prestigious of the nationally competitive awards. Stephen is the second Villanovan to receive this honor; Ivanley Noisette (CLAS, Class of 2008), won the award in 2010. Such recognition provides evidence of the excellence of Villanova’s students and the education and mentoring they receive from our outstanding faculty and staff.
As a Mitchell Scholar, Stephen will be studying Bioengineering at Trinity College Dublin in order to develop improved auditory technology for the hearing-impaired. Real more about Stephen and his accomplishments in a press release from the US-Ireland Alliance website!
