Kieran Waigel

McConnell Scholar Class of 2022


Kieran Waigel, of Louisville, Ky., is member of the McConnell Scholar Class of 2022 at the University of Louisville where he studies computer engineering and computer science and political science.

He is a 2018 graduate of duPont Manual High School. He earned National Merit Commended honors and was a 2017 Kentucky Governor's Scholar. He earned Eagle Scout distinction.

Going straight into computer science meant that I would be missing out on a lot of the benefits from a more liberal arts education. I feel that this award will allow me to pursue a narrow field while still introducing me to new ideas and modes of thought.
