BIRMINGHAM, MICH. — A West Point cadet from suburban Detroit and goalie of Army’s women’s lacrosse team is one of 32 Americans named Rhodes Scholars, giving them an opportunity to study at Britain’s Oxford University.

Calla Glavin of Birmingham is a senior math major at the U.S. Military Academy.

The Rhodes Trust announced her selection Sunday. It says she’s a brigade commander and founding editor of the Past in Review student newspaper. She’s also president of the society of women engineers.

The trust says Glavin has done biophysics research at Harvard University and developed a mathematical model for using nanofibers in helping wounds heal.

Rhodes Scholarships cover all expenses for two or three years of study at the school in England. Selections are based on academic and physical accomplishment.
