Melissa Condo Participates in Quinnipiac’s Presidential Public Service Fellowship Program

HAMDEN, Conn. – Over the summer months, Quinnipiac University women's rugby senior Melissa Condo (Hull, Mass.) participated in Quinnipiac's Presidential Public Service Fellowship program, where she was one of 12 Bobcats to gain valuable hands-on experience in local government. The university awarded the fellowship to juniors and seniors to help them gain a clear understanding of how town governments operate.

Fellows go through an extensive orientation program and bi-weekly seminar/dinners with guest public servants who help them reflect on their experiences in the town. In addition, fellows met with Connecticut leaders, including Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman, at the State Capitol, and also spoke with Senate Majority Leader and Quinnipiac Adjunct Professor Martin Looney, House Speaker Brendan Sharkey and Mark Ojakian, Gov. Dannel Malloy's chief of staff.
