Kendra Jacobs Selected to Attend 2018 Congressional Fellows Program


Kendra Jacobs has been selected to attend the Congressional Fellows Program, a leadership development and training opportunity for university students who desire to incorporate faith and values into their leadership. Congressional Fellows are a small group of 35 students who are selected each year to live, work and learn together in Washington, DC, for two months in June and July. Fellows live in the Cornerstone Intern House with other students working in the nation's capitol and intern in Congressional offices or with other organizations in the D.C. area. Each week, the Fellows’ schedule includes community service activities, interning three days a week and leadership training/teaching days. Congressional internship opportunities provide Fellows with a firsthand look at the inner workings of our nation’s leadership. Kendra is a student in the School of Religion. A junior, majoring in philosophy and religion, Kendra is also a legacy student. Her parents Kennedy Jacobs and Lucinda-Evans Jacobs are B-CU graduates.
