Taneum Fotheringill | class of '18

Taneum graduated (Magna Cum Laude) with a double degree in Public Affairs and Humanities for Leadership. She joined Citizen University as the Program and Communications Coordinator. “Public Affairs is filled with courses that allowed me to be imaginative about my studies. Each course challenged me to develop a deep interest in my work and to explore the vast possibilities of public service. I began the program without any concept of what my future career could be, and I left firmly committed to civic life and public service.”
