On February 2, 2019, we welcomed back Georgetown alumni for the SFS Centennial College. Alumni returned to the Hilltop for class, but without the exams!
The SFS hosted the founders of Anduril Industries, Palmer Luckey and Trae Stephens (SFS ‘06), for a discussion on technology and the future of national security with Toni Gidwani (SFS’04, SSP’08), Adjunct Assistant Professor for the Center for Security Studies.
On Thursday, January 3, Sadaf Jaffer (SFS’05) was sworn into office as mayor of Morristown, New Jersey. She is New Jersey’s first South Asian woman to be elected mayor. While serving as mayor, she will continue to work as a postdoctoral research associate at the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies.
While studying at the School of Foreign Service, John Laytham (SFS’66) accepted a job as dishwasher at Clyde’s. Five years later, he was promoted to partner and co-owner of the iconic Georgetown restaurant. Laytham passed away January 3, leaving a legacy of service to the D.C. community and vision for the D.C. restaurant scene.
An existing program for aspiring public servants has a boost and a new name thanks to the leadership and personal generosity of Paul (F’62) and Nancy (H’02) Pelosi (Parents’88,’89,’91,’95).
