Savannah Tenney, a senior at Wheaton College in Norton, Mass. and a native of Sudbury, Mass., has won a Fulbright award to teach English in Taiwan. 

Tenney, a double major in anthropology and English, is one of seven Wheaties so far this spring to receive a Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship. Her Fulbright will take her to the Taiwanese archipelago of Kinmen, located just off the coast of mainland China, for an 11-month post starting in August.

“I decided to apply for a Fulbright because I knew I wanted to take a few years off between now and applying to graduate schools, and I knew I wanted to spend some of that time abroad, doing something that I felt was productive and important,” Tenney said.
