HINCKLEY ALUMNI SPOTLIGHT:

BASIL VETAS 


Congratulations to Hinckley Alumni, Basil Vetas, on winning the JPMorgan Chase Code for Good Challenge. Basil and his team worked with the non-profit Rock the Earth, a group that works on environmental issues by partnering with musicians, concert venues, and music festivals. Basil's team created a mobile, automated system for collecting petition signatures at concerts and other events that can later be monitored on social media platforms. In fact, Basil's performance so impressed JPMorgan that he was offered a full-time position in New York City. Basil has previously interned with the University Impact Fund and with Village Capital in Nairobi, Kenya. Additionally, Basil served as co-editor of the 2014 Hinckley Journal of Politics
 
INTERN SPOTLIGHT: ZACHARY LUSK

We deeply feel the loss of such an outstanding student, intern, and individual. Zachary's bright disposition and impeccable work ethic opened doors to produce and contribute to Senator Dabakis' show "UP." Due to his strong performance, Zachary was selected to intern with Senator Dabakis in the upcoming 2016 General Legislative Session. Zach was widely engaged on campus and in the community and his presence will be sorely missed.
