Kelli Grant in the Times

Kelli B. Grant ’04, now a reporter at SmartMoney.com in New York, made her first appearance as a writer in the New York Times this week with a freelance piece on community investing called “Putting Your Money Where Your Heart Lies.”
While this was Kelli's first appearance in the Times as a writer, she has been featured there before. Last November the Times ran a story on her search for an apartment in Manhattan, “Shooting the Moon, on a Budget.”
While at IC, Kelli worked at The Ithacan as a news reporter, news editor and special projects manager.

Headed for the Foreign Service

Megan Tetrick ’03, one of our former opinion editors, has been awarded a prestigious Thomas R. Pickering Foreign Affairs Fellowship to pursue her graduate education at Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs. She is studying for a master's degree in international affairs.
The fellowship, which is funded by the State Department, attracts and prepares recipients for the U.S. foreign service.
After graduation from IC, Megan spent nearly three years in the Peace Corps teaching English in the Ukraine. While there she learned Ukrainian and Russian.
After she completes her degree at Columbia, she will intern at an embassy abroad as part of the fellowship; she will then train at the Foreign Service Institute in Washington, D.C., and receive an assignment as a foreign service officer.
