Ashland High graduate Ella Street will spend the summer studying minority rights as one of 59 Humanity in Action Fellows.




The American students will join university students from Europe for five weeks of intensive study of contemporary minority and human rights issues in the United States and Europe.




Street, a political philosophy junior at Colorado College, will study political science in Warsaw. She is the daughter of Bill and Jane Street and a 2004 graduate of Ashland High School.




Humanity in Action allows American and European college and university students to collaborate and study the condition of minorities in the host country and seek innovative ways to address these issues. Fellows are selected on the basis of leadership ability, demonstrated commitment to human rights and minority issues and high academic achievement.
