I am very pleased to announce the promotion of Samantha Apgar from Assistant to Associate Director of the Public Policy Program. Samantha has played a critical role in carrying out virtually every phase of the program, from recruitment to advising to helping match our students with internships and jobs. If not for her effectiveness and efficiency the program would not run as smoothly or as successfully as it does. Beyond this, however, she has provided us with important insights and perspectives on many critical issues facing the program. Congratulations, Sam!
