Meet Your 2011 Summer Fellows: Part 1

Posted by Alex Miller at May 17, 2011 01:55 PM |
The Summer Fellows program doesn't start in earnest until June, 20th (oh and you should all come to the Summer Fellows Inauguration* in Nord Alley to hang out with them), but it's never too early for a first look at some of the most dynamic, talented, and effervescent young people in the state. The folks below come from our first round of applications, so expect a part 2 to this series with more of what you love: great young people doing great things.

HOLY CRAP SUMMER FELLOWS.

Ahem. Excuse me. Trying to keep it together here.  It's just. You see, what I'm really trying to say is -

HOLY CRAP THIS IS EXCITING.

The Summer Fellows program doesn't start in earnest until June, 20th (oh and you should all come to the Summer Fellows Inauguration* in Nord Alley to hang out with them), but it's never too early for a first look at some of the most dynamic, talented, and effervescent (yeah, we went there) young people in the state who will be taking that next step towards running the world this summer.  The folks below come from our first round of applications, so expect a part 2 to this series with more of what you love: great young people doing great things.

Check out their pictures and a brief statement from each (if we tried to put their whole resumes on here we'd be here all night). Be astounded folks - astounded.
