Nathanael Franks, a University of Arkansas graduate, has made the final round of interviews in Seattle this Saturday for selection of 32 Rhodes Scholarship winners. The scholarships, won by the likes of Bill Clinton, provide two years of study at Oxford.

Franks, a native of Portland, Ore., was a nationally competitive decathlete for the Razorback track team and earned a bachelor's degree in chemistry and physics with a minor in history. He graduated magna cum laude. He earned a master's in business administration and is completing a master of accountancy.

If he becomes a Rhodes scholar, Franks will study global health science. The UA has had 10 Rhodes scholars, the last Anna Terry in 2001.
