CMC student Dylan Hoey

Dylan Hoey ’17, a Government and History dual major at CMC, has accepted one of this year’s 10 undergraduate Thomas R. Pickering Fellowships, which provide recipients with financial support, mentoring services, and professional development opportunities in order to prepare them for a career with the U.S. Foreign Service.

Hoey follows in the footsteps of Dante Toppo ’15, who received the same award in 2014.

So what would it be like to give a speech in as imposing an edifice as the United Nations Headquarters in New York City? For Zephanii Smith ’13, who earlier in the month addressed an impressive list of organization heads and some of the world’s leading female entrepreneurs there as a 2015 Women’s Entrepreneurship Day Fellow, it was something to take in stride and be “thrilled about.”

This past summer, two CMC students, Ben Fusek ‘17 and Zachariah Oquenda ‘16, embarked on a two-month journey to rural Rwanda through ThinkImpact. ThinkImpact is a social entrepreneurship organization that provides students the opportunity to engage in experimental learning as they work in rural communities to test ideas and prototype changing innovations.
