Wyndmoor student awarded scholarship to attend international high school

Caleb Anagnos of Wyndmoor, PA. has received a scholarship to continue his high school education at the United World College-ISAK in Japan.

The son of Suzanne and Fred Duling of Wyndmoor, and Xan Anangos of Landrum, S.C., Caleb recently completed his sophomore year at Springfield Township High School in Wyndmoor.

Caleb’s interest in the United World College comes from his enthusiasm for learning about and understanding different cultures. He has studied Spanish and Japanese and was a member of the Model Organization of American States at his high school.

Caleb was among 60 U.S. students selected for the merit-based Davis Scholarships.

UWC is an international high school for 16- to 19-year-olds with 18 campuses worldwide whose mission is to unite cultures through education, thus creating a peaceful, sustainable world. UWC students represent up to 90 countries at some campuses; many come from conflict regions.
