Scholars students took home several top awards at the 36th University Student Leadership Awards on Sunday, May 7.
Jazz Lewis, a 2009 alumnus of Public Leadership Scholars, is currently serving as the second youngest delegate in the Maryland General Assembly.
"[Public Leadership] was pivotal to me, I got my first job in politics because of Public Leadership. I interned in the [Prince George’s County] councilman’s office as part of my practicum project," Lewis said.
This internship provided him with a "feel for change on the local level," especially in Prince George’s County, where Lewis grew up.
After working with Public Leadership Scholars for 10 years, Jennifer Littlefield will be transitioning out as director of the program and moving into the Public Policy Undergraduate Studies Office full-time.
Littlefield sent Public Leadership Scholars an email on March 8 to inform students that this semester will be her last with PL.
