The first cohort of Reynolds Leadership Scholars arrived on campus in August 2023, and they had a variety of meaningful interactions and opportunities throughout the fall. 

They attended a special presentation by the Advising, Internships & Career Center about how to plan and apply for competitive internship and fellowship opportunities and a luncheon with two visiting speakers. The scholars also participated in a special networking event hosted by Kevin McAllister ’98, founder and CEO of Access Holdings, a Maryland-based investment firm with over $2.4 billion under management, and his wife Julie Martin McAllister ’96, followed by a reception with alumni and parents primarily representing finance and real estate. They also participated in informational interviews with several alumni and Maryland leaders.

This spring, they are looking forward to a dinner with Jennifer and George and have been invited to attend the Alumni Council networking reception, as well as a lunch with members of the Board of Trustees. Other sessions available this spring include a discussion on perfectionism and structural injustice with Assistant Professor of Philosophy Amy McKiernan, a networking skills workship with trustee and Director/Co-founder of The International School of Protocol Carol Haislip '79, P'11, and an inside look at Dickinson's finances with Vice President for Finance & Administration David Walker.
