Spotlight of the Day: Ellie Hylton

Attending the prestigious Harvard College is commendable enough, but  recent graduate Ethel “Ellie” Hylton went even further in her pursuit of  academic excellence.

The sociology major, who graduated Summa Cum Laude in May, won the  Sophia Freund prize for achieving the highest overall GPA in her  graduating class.

Alongside her excellent work in the classroom, Hylton was inducted  into the Phi Beta Kappa Society last fall and even made time to excel as  a varsity athlete.

On a personal note, Ellie possesses a kind, humble spirit that makes  her joy to engage with her. She’d never mention it, but she comes from a  family full of Harvard alums including her aunt Soledad O’Brien.
