Isaac Scarborough, a 2002, graduate of Los Alamos High School, has been awarded a Fulbright Fellowship to Kazakhstan for the 2010-2011 year. Scarborough’s research focus will be Stalin’s mass relocation of people from Russia to Central Asia in the 1930s. After graduating from LAHS, Scarborough graduated from New York University with a double major in political science and philosophy. He then served in the Peace Corps in Turkmenistan, worked for the American Councils for International Education in Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan, organized a conference for the Turkmenistan Youth and Civic Values Organization in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan and most recently successfully completed the U.S. State Department Flagship Russian Language Program in St. Petersburg, Russia. This summer he will again work for the American Councils for International Education in Moscow, Russia. Scarborough is the son of Lysa and Tom Intrator of Los Alamos and John Scarborough of Madison, Wis.

Stephen and Kathleen Boerigter of Los Alamos have welcomed a new “daughter” for the 2010 academic school year, Maja Esther Brigitte Struck, a Youth for Understanding exchange student from Germany. Struck is attending Los Alamos High School.
Eager  to join her host family and become immersed in the Los Alamos community, Struck will live as a true member of the Boerigter family — participating in social activities and events, vacations and daily household chores. In turn, she will also share the culture and customs of Germany with her host family, friends and fellow classmates.
