Matt Shafer is entering his second year of the MPA program. In this post, he describes one of his first projects as a policy analyst at the Council of State Governments.
Our alumni go on to do great things for their communities. We feature some of their accomplishments below.
Natalie Gibson (MPA '98) serves as the System Director of Cultural Diversity for the Kentucky Community and Technical College System.
While many of our graduates go on to careers in government, Robert Kahne (MPP ‘11) illustrates that the calling to serve the public good takes many forms.
We visit with alumna Lauren Kesselring (MPA ’16) to learn more about her work for the City of San Antonio.
Alyshia Powell (MPA '16) works with local officials and constituents as they seek out federal funding for community projects as the Director of Economic Development for Congressman Andy Barr. Congressman Barr represents the Sixth District in the U.S. House of Representatives.
When we think of auditors, what often comes to mind are financial sleuths on the lookout for fraudulent behavior. As an Internal Auditor for the City of Convington, Jenna Skop (MPA ‘13) has a slightly different mission.
Angela Holman graduated in 2013 with her MPA and resides in Ohio. She currently works as the Director of Marketing and Fundraising for Special Olympics Hamilton County.
Where is he now? Read more about Dustin, an MPA graduate, and his work as a Research and Policy Associate at the Kentucky Center for Economic Policy.
When you meet Dr. Jeremy Hall (Ph.D. '05), you pick up on two things really quickly-- he's a Kentuckian through-and-through, and he has a great sense of humor. As Martin School students have found in the classes he has taught as a visiting professor, though, he is not only passionate about public service, but he is also a humble, hardworking team player.
Andrew McNeill, who is a Martin School MPA graduate, was appointed to his new post by the Governor. Congratulations, Andrew!
