A Century of Saints

Dylan Kesti '10


Dylan KestiDylan Kesti was one of 60 young scholars selected from across the country to present research at the National Council of Undergraduate Research in Washington, D.C. He presented "An analysis of the effectiveness of two USAID agricultural projects in rural Zambia." At St. Scholastica he served as chair of the Environmental Sustainability Coalition and as coordinator for the Center of Just Living, among other activities. He is pursuing an international dual degree in Natural Resources and Sustainable Development at American University's School of International Service, studying in Washington, D.C. and the United Nations School for Peace in Costa Rica.


Dylan was an outstanding member of my Honors class, Strangers in Their Own Land. His interest in marginalized peoples led to lively discussions and fresh insights - for me as well as for the other students. Dylan personifies the Benedictine characteristic of Love of Learning. While he might occasionally be a bit late for class, he always arrived prepared for discussion. He also personifies another virtue: humility, which is essential for any researcher/activist. Dylan welcomed, even relished the new knowledge chunk which obliged him to rethink his previous stance. Congratulations to Dylan as a famous Saint!
