Each year, 95 students from around the world are selected for Rhodes scholarships; 35 of them are from the United States. This year, Alaska has their own Rhodes Scholar.

Samantha Mack is Aleut from a remote village in the Aleutian Islands. Her family moved her to Anchorage as a child so she could receive better educational opportunities.

Mack received her B.A. magna cum laude in 2016 with majors in political science and English from the University of Anchorage; she's expected to complete her Master's degree in English with an emphasis on literary theory in May.
