After meeting with the three finalists, the Baldwin Scholars have decided to endorse Katherine Zhang for Young Trustee. Katherine is remarkably qualified for the position: She has extensive experience discussing and debating significant University issues through her work with The Chronicle’s Editorial Board and has also demonstrated a breadth of interests through her academics and diverse array of extracurricular involvements. We were particularly impressed by Katherine’s thoughtfulness and her comprehensive knowledge of issues that are and will continue to be of critical importance to Duke. Her voice will be a credible and well-informed one on the Board, and we are confident that she will represent students well.

The Baldwin Scholars strive to encourage and promote female leadership at Duke and beyond. Katherine will contribute to the growing diversity on the Board, and will serve as a strong female leader and role model for others. It is with confidence and excitement that the Baldwin Scholars endorse her to serve as Young Trustee.
