Fellow Spotlight 
This month's Featured Fellow is Alexis Newell from      Hammond, Indiana!  
 When asked, what motivates her to do public service, she said: 
"What motivates me to do public service is knowing that building stronger communities makes for stronger individuals.
One of the truest statements I’ve heard is knowledge is power and I think one of the greatest tools to bring knowledge to people is through public service.
I also love knowing I can give hope to someone to go forward and live their dreams. Public service gives communities strong foundations to flourish."
