Tunica Native First Black Ole Miss Rhodes Scholar


OXFORD, MS (Ben Caxton) — A University of Mississippi senior is the first African American woman from the school to become a Rhodes Scholar. Tunica native Arielle Hudson is the 27th Ole Miss student selected for the prestigious program. An English education major, Hudson received a full scholarship from the Ole Miss chapter of the Mississippi Excellence in Teaching Program. Hudson plans to pursue dual master’s degrees in comparative social policy and comparative international education as a Rhodes recipient before returning to Mississippi Delta to fulfill a five-year teaching requirement for her scholarship. The Rhodes scholarship program brings 32 high-achieving students from around the world to England’s University of Oxford each year.
