Student Pride

Student Fulbright Scholarship winner Alicia Dallman portraitFrom one-room school to Fulbright scholar

Nebraska Wesleyan prides itself on its small classes, but few are as small as those Alicia Dallman (’09) has experienced. Dallman is from Macon, Neb., population: 30. She attended a one-room school until the sixth grade. Her graduating class consisted of three students.

People from such small communities are accustomed to wearing several hats, and Dallman is no exception. She’s a triple major in Spanish, English and secondary education with a love for American and Chicano literature. She spent the spring semester of her junior year studying in Argentina. Her Fulbright Scholarship will take her to Spain to teach English and research dual-bilingual education programs.

Dallman also won the Kappa Delta Pi-EF Tours Global Awareness Scholarship, which will send her to Germany, Switzerland and the Czech Republic. The scholarship’s goal is to increase international awareness for future educators.
