Anthony Yellowfish, a student at East Central University, has been chosen to participate in the 2024 Brad Henry International Scholar Program. This prestigious opportunity allows him to travel overseas and immerse himself in a full semester of studies in Wales.

The program offers students from Oklahoma Regional University the chance to pursue their academic interests at Swansea University in Wales, United Kingdom.

Expressing his enthusiasm for the upcoming experience, Yellowfish mentioned, “It’s the only college in the world located on an oceanic coast.” He eagerly anticipates exploring the United Kingdom and neighboring countries, particularly mentioning his desire to visit London and Paris, with a side trip to Scotland to admire the historic castles.

Hailing from Ada, Yellowfish is currently in his junior year at ECU, majoring in instrumental music with a minor in political science.

Reflecting on the classes he is looking forward to the most, Yellowfish shared, “I’m enrolled in Poverty and Social Justice, taught by a seasoned social rights advocate. It’s akin to attending a cardiology lecture taught by a veteran cardiologist with decades of experience.”

Yellowfish will earn academic credits during his overseas studies, marking his inaugural international travel experience. His journey commenced on January 20, with classes commencing on January 29 and concluding on June 9.

Recipients of the Brad Henry Scholarship, valued at around $12,000, are required to have completed a minimum of 30 credit hours, possess exceptional academic credentials, exemplary writing and communication skills, outstanding character, and demonstrate leadership qualities, maturity, and sound judgement.
