Kate Schebaum - Class of 2009

USM History major and secondary education certification student who became one of USM's first Fulbright award winners. Kate spent two years in South Korea teaching English to grade schoolers and now teaches in the States.

"I would absolutely encourage other students to apply to Saint Mary. It was an amazing experience. You just have to have an open mind to succeed, and I hope there are more Fulbrighters from USM.

The education department at USM was key to my success. The classroom experience I gained from it definitely gave me more confidence when I graduated."
