Melissa Clarke Elrod Fellowship Recipient Being an Elrod Fellow was a great experience and one that encouraged me to pursue a career in law. I stayed on for a second year and am now a student at The University of Maryland School of Law.
Corey Gaber Elrod Fellowship Recipient I came to Washington and Lee confident in my political views especially in regards to poverty. However a combination of theoretical study in Poverty 101 and real life experience with ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) in Baltimore City exposed my vast ignorance.
Whitney Duffey Elrod Fellowship Recipient My fellowship with Quadel Consulting also highlighted many of the challenges and barriers that I remember from class. But I'm glad to say the occasional frustration didn't leave me jaded or doubtful. If anything, these challenges strengthened my faith in the tenacity of the human spirit.
