Woodlands Academy of the Sacred Heart alumna Austen Murrow of Lake Barrington meets former President Bill Clinton at the American University of Dubai (AUD) April 10. Murrow is one of five students on a full-ride scholarship to study Arabic and Middle Eastern studies at AUD through the William Jefferson Clinton Scholarship.
At AUD, students took turns asking questions revolving around the peace in the Middle East, the conflict in Syria and North Korea, as well the president's view on Africa as a developing continent.
Murrow is a student at the University of Virginia and expects to graduate in 2015. She graduated from Woodlands Academy in Lake Forest in 2010.
