Lawrence Township school board member Henry Fernandez, Indiana's first openly gay elected official, will be attending the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. GayPolitics.org is reporting:
The David Bohnett Foundation has teamed with the Gay & Lesbian Leadership Institute (GLLI) to help the organization sponsor lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender public officials in attending one of the nation's most prestigious mid-career executive development programs -- the Senior Executives in State and Local Government program at Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government. The program, to be named the David Bohnett Gay & Lesbian Leadership Fellows, is being funded by a $500,000 grant to GLLI.
Fernandez is one of ten LGBT leaders chosen to attend. I've met Henry quite a few times and I'm always impressed with his demeanor, intelligence and attitude. I can't think of a better guy to get this honor.
