Student Lands Fellowship in Washington, D.C.
May 23, 2013
Once commencement ceremonies conclude this weekend, Jacqueline I. Gonzalez, a 23-year-old Anaheim resident, will take her newly-minted bachelor's degree in child and adolescent development and head east for a stint as the Kettering Public Administration Fellow with the U.S. Department of the Interior. She was encouraged to seek the fellowship by alumnus T. Allan Comp ’65 (B.A. history), coordinator of the Office of Surface Mining/Volunteers in Service to America Teams. “I am eager to learn how to influence decisions that will positively impact my community,” said Gonzalez, a first-generation college student whose family emigrated from Mexico before she was born.
