On Thursday, August 7, Sondheim Public Affairs Scholars Program alumni got together for a sunny, harbor-side happy hour at The Boathouse in Canton. Alumni from class years 2003-2014 shared stories about the program, professional and personal updates, and made new connections. The Sondheim Public Affairs Scholars Program supports talented undergraduates aspiring to careers in public service in a wide variety of fields including government, law, non-profit leadership, education, and the private sector. The program honors Walter Sondheim, a champion of Baltimore’s renewal, a business leader, and an advocate for public education. As suggested by the program’s mission, Sondheim Scholars serve the public in many ways. Alumni at the August 7 happy hour included lawyers, educators, policy analysts, government staff, political campaigners, non-profit professionals, and graduate students. Thanks for coming out, Sondheim alumni, and look for your next opportunity to connect at UMBC Homecoming!
