New Gates scholar features on university billboards

Scholar-elect Amy Zhang is featured on billboards outside Rutgers University.

Scholar-elect Amy Zhang has had her picture posted on a billboard at Rutgers University to promote her Gates scholarship award.

The billboard reads: “Rutgers scholars are among the brightest in the world. Meet one of this year’s highest achievers, scholar-athlete Amy Zhang, winner of a prestigious 2011 Gates Cambridge Scholarship”.

Amy, who is a competitive tennis player, will be studying for an MPhil in Advanced Computer Science from September.

The billboard is posted at the main entrance to the campus and the other on the New Jersey Turnpike.

This is not the first time Rutgers has featured Gates scholars prominently on its billboards. In 2008, three scholars – Suzie Pilaar, Brian Spatocco, Mike Hayoun – were highlighted (see below).
