Public Leadership Alumni Jazz Lewis

PL Alumnus Elected to State Legislature

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.
