Two College of Law students - David Jackson and Kaitlyn Redfield-Ortiz – have been chosen along with 15 other ASU students for the first Spirit of Service Scholars awarded by ASU’s College of Public Programs.
Dedicated to pursuing careers in public service, these Scholars are poised to help create the next generation of public and nonprofit leaders who will transform government and society at all levels. With baby boomers rapidly retiring, we face a looming crisis: a dearth of talent available at federal and local levels to assume critically important roles in government and management.
The Spirit of Service Scholars initiative provides scholarships to students dedicated to seeking careers in the public and non-profit sectors. The Scholars will also serve as mentors to 34 Arizona high school students who are also interested in careers in public service.
The recipients will be honored at a luncheon with ASU President Michael Crow on Monday, Sept. 13.
