Three Eastern Kentucky University students are headed overseas with full-ride Summer 2014 Study Abroad scholarships.

And all they had to do was register for a drawing and spin a wheel to determine their destination.

The winners, out of 268 registrants, were Brenna Rowan, Shelbyville, who’s headed to Germany; Matthew Moore, London, who’s headed to Greece; and Paige Van Zandt, Muscatine, Iowa, who’s also headed to Greece.

EKU President Michael Benson, who was present for the drawing and spin on April 25, said the event was “so creative and successful” that his office was committing to match the Study Abroad scholarship funds for next year’s “spin-the-wheel” event.

Other possible destinations for the winners were the Czech Republic, Ireland, Tanzania and France.
