Meet the Class of 2015

May 2016 College Fellows Newsletter


Dear Fellows:
This is the first installment of profiles of our 2015 Fellows. We start each profile with the citation from the induction ceremony and then jump into a Q&A that delves a bit deeper into who our new Fellows are in real life. We are looking forward to meeting our 2016 Fellow Inductees at the Futures Conference in Kansas City, September 15-16.
— Mark Tamminga
