Congratulations to Bowling Green senior Kerby Gilstrap and WKU alumnus Noah Moore for being recongized as Semi-Finalists in the 2022-23 Fulbright U.S. Student Program competition. They are among nine WKU students and graduates recognized.
Kerby Gilstrap of Bowling Green is the daughter of Kim and Rodney Gilstrap. A graduating senior in International Affairs, Arabic, and Sustainable Development (Honors Self-Designed), she applied for a Fulbright grant to teach English and American culture in Bahrain. Kerby says, “Ever since my freshman year when I took Honors 105 with Dr. Grimsley, I knew I wanted to apply for a Fulbright. I have applied for many nationally competitive opportunities during my time at WKU, but none of them felt like a greater fit than English teaching in Bahrain. Being selected as a semifinalist feels so empowering because it has been my goal for so long.” After graduating, she hopes to help address climate change and development issues in the Middle East and North Africa (WKU News, March 1, 2022).
Noah Moore is from Fort Thomas and the son of Mary and Pat Moore, and brother to Abi and Jonah Moore. After graduating with degrees in Public Relations, Spanish, and Arabic in Spring 2021, Noah has been teaching English in Spain. He applied for a Fulbright grant to teach English in Mexico. In the future, he plans to pursue a graduate degree in arts administration and a career advancing arts education in communities worldwide (WKU News, March 1, 2022).
