Beaumont senior earns OU scholarship

Emma Rubadue

Emma Rubadue, a senior at Beaumont School and a University Heights resident, will attend Ohio University this fall as a Cutler Scholarship recipient.

Rubadue was one of 15 applicants, from a field of 350, selected for the highly competitive scholarship, which is renewable for all four years of her collegiate studies.

“The selection committee members were impressed by Emma’s intellectual curiosity and community engagement,” said Beaumont Director of College Counseling Mary Grimaldi. “They also said they saw her as a leader for change and an advocate for social justice.”

“Throughout Emma’s participation in my classes (computer science principles and introduction to programming/robotics) along with her participation on Beaumont’s winning team of the CLE Teen Hack Coding competition, Emma has demonstrated excellence in coding, computer science and interdisciplinary team projects,” said Sister Ann Wojnar, Beaumont instructor.

“Emma was one of seven students awarded first place in the CLE Teen Hack Coding for Community competition in May 2016. As a part of this competition, Emma learned coding skills in HTML, CSS, Ruby on Rails, and JavaScript to design the VoteNow and Ballot portions of an app (CLETeenVote) in anticipation of the general election last November. She was an integral part of the team, both in the creation of the app and in the excellent presentation of it to a panel of judges,” said Wojnar.

The Cutler Scholars Program is Ohio University’s premier scholarship program. It selects students based on their intellectual curiosity, leadership, service and character. During the four-year scholarship program, Cutler Scholars live together, participate in a weekly colloquium, and take part in four enrichment experiences: outdoor leadership, public service, international travel, and internships.
