First U-M Alumnus Selected as an AGU Congressional Science Fellow

Congratulations to our own Kevin Reed who will be moving to Washington, DC in August to begin his American Geophysical Union (AGU) Congressional Science Fellowship. This is the 35th year of the Fellowship Program and Kevin is the first University of Michigan alumnus to be selected. He is joining a very select group of "highly qualified, accomplished scientists, engineers, and other professionals" who have been an AGU Fellow. During his year-long fellowship, Kevin will have the opportunity to make significant contributions to public policy during his work with Congress.

What an excellent way to start a career.

Congratulations Dr. Reed!

Jim Slavin
AOSS Professor and Chair
