THORNBURGH TO PARTICIPATE IN
ASPEN-RODEL FELLOWSHIP

ASPEN, CO.- Today, Kansas Secretary of State Ron Thornburgh joined 23 other young leaders from around the nation in Aspen, Colorado to kick off the Aspen-Rodel Fellowship in Public Leadership.

The program, which is sponsored by the Aspen Institute, focuses on bringing together bipartisan groups of governmental leaders to discuss the ethics and responsibilities of public leadership in a democratic society.

“I feel honored to have the opportunity to meet with such a dedicated group of national leaders. I am certain that the lessons I will take away from the fellowship will prove valuable as I continue my work for the people of Kansas.” said Thornburgh. 

Each year, the fellowship class is made up of 12 Democrats and 12 Republicans from across the nation. For a complete roster, visit www.aspeninstitute.org
