March 09, 2015

Lasell's Student Government Association President Jennessa Agnew, a native of Atkinson, NH, has been chosen as one of two college students from her state to attend the dedication ceremony of the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate.

The institute, which will hold its dedication ceremony March 30, chose two College students from each state to be paired with their U.S. Senators.

"I am honored to represent New Hampshire and Lasell, my favorite place," said Agnew.

Agnew was one of several Lasell students who applied to participate in the ceremony. In addition, Professor Paul DeBole sent a letter to Victoria Reggie Kennedy, President of the Edward M. Kennedy Institute Board of Directors and the late Senator's wife, recommending several students, including Agnew, for selection.

"We are very proud of Jennessa. It is such an honor to have her represent Lasell College at the dedication," said Lasell President Michael B. Alexander.

The Lasell Senior is majoring in Political Communication (a major  she created), has been a member of the SGA for three years, served as vice president of the Class of 2015 for two years, was a Resident Assistant for two years and is a leadership scholar.

She has interned at the public relations firm O'Neill and Associates in Boston and with the Democratic National Committee in Washington D.C.
