Pengyous Attend the Committee of 100 25th Anniversary Gala and Summit!


Over the weekend, several of our Leadership Fellows had the opportunity to attend the Committee of 100 Annual Conference in New York City celebrating the 25th anniversary of the organization! The fellows helped as volunteers to keep the conference running smoothly, and several also had the rare opportunity to meet VIPs such as former U.S. Ambassador to China, Gary Locke!

The fellows in attendance included Tammy Tian (UW-Madison Chapter), Leslie Martinez (TAMIU Chapter), Will Jockers (SUNY Geneseo Chapter), Katie Keith (Lewis & Clark College Chapter), Tom Hoffecker (Teach for China), Natalie Nagorski (Saint Ann’s School Chapter), Jordan Hayward (Ole Miss Chapter), Tyler Bleuel (Horace Mann Academy Chapter), and Kathleen He (UC Berkeley Chapter).

Thank you to all of our amazing Leadership Fellows who came to help at the conference! We hope that you had a great time and learned a lot from the Committee members and each other. Stay tuned for more pictures and posts from the Fellows recounting their experiences!
