A Trifecta of Fellows: Lockhart, Henry, and Herbert

By Betsy Rothstein 


Fellow – it’s such a distinguished word.

And in our midst are three new George Washington University fellows. They are former White House Press Sec. under Bill Clinton and managing director of The Glover Park Group Joe Lockhart, CNN’s senior White House correspondent Ed Henry and NYT columnist Bob Herbert. They’ve been appointed as such to the School of Media and Public Affairs for the 2010-2011 school year.

With mid-term elections fast approaching, they will examine political races with students. “Their varied experiences not only embody the trifecta of public affairs and communications but also get at the heart of what we teach – reporting, opinion journalism and political communication,” remarked Frank Sesno, director of GWU’s School of Media and Public Affairs.

What exactly will these fellows do? Find out after the jump…

The fellows will deliver lectures, host seminars for students and faculty and speak at other larger public and private events. The semester will kick-off with a discussion at GW with Mr. Lockhart on Sept. 1 and a lecture from Mr. Henry at SMPA’s Majors Night on Sept. 7.
