David Shimer '18, a 2014 graduate of Horace Greeley High School in Chappaqua, was awarded a Marshall Scholarship in early December to study at Oxford next year.  He will be joined by two other Yale seniors, Erika Green '18 and Amanda Royka '18.

Next spring, from Yale, Shimer will earn both B.A. and M.A. degrees in history. While at Yale, he was editor-in-chief of the Yale Daily News, reported from Berlin for the New York Times last summer and interned for the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign on the debate-preparation and policy teams. He has also been elected to Phi Beta Kappa and earned a Truman Scholarship.

At Greeley, Shimer was class valedictorian, captain of the debate team, and editor-in-chief of the school newspaper.  At Oxford, he will study international relations.
