FIVE TCNJ FOX SCHOLARS NAMED
On May 2, 2018, the James P. Fox Memorial Fund marked its first milestone in continuing the legacy of its namesake, our friend Jamie Fox, with the induction of the first Fox Scholars of the Jamie Fox Scholars Program at The College of New Jersey (TCNJ). The program matched each student with a seasoned public affairs mentor, who provided them with a behind-the-scene look at the inner workings of politics and policy making, introductions to and shadowing with elected and government officials, and advice on a path forward into a career in the public sector. Pictured (l to r) are Fox Scholars with mentors: Doug Hritz (mentor), Dillon McNamara, Corinne Winters, Heather Atamian, Danielle Alpert (mentor), Kay Elizabeth Li Causi (mentor), Nancy Rae Pietrobon, Daniel Nason, Diane Scaccetti (mentor), and Kevin Hagan (mentor).
