  • 2019 Fellows

    Carlthorp School thanks its 2019 Fellows!  This past year, four Fellows worked with the 6th grade policy teams to prepare them for their trip to to Washington, D.C. where they met with lawmakers, policy experts, NGOs, and journalists.  2019 Carlthorp School Fellows were:
    • Anita A. - Harvard-Westlake, Class of 2019
    • Hayden H. - Marlborough School, Class of 2020
    • Lily S. - Campbell Hall, Class of 2020
    • Michael L. - Harvard-Westlake, Class of 2020
  • Special Experiences

    In addition to a three day packed schedule of meetings with lawmakers, NGOs and policy experts, and a day full of museums and monuments, the 2019 Fellows enjoyed a private meeting with President Obama’s Director of Communications, Jen Psaki.  We hope to arrange similar special opportunities for this year's Fellows.

    Fellows will serve as alumni ambassadors and may be asked to represent the school in special on-campus or community events.
