2017 alumni plan to wed in 2019

Classmates Karina Virrueta (MPA ’17) and Mitch Running, who is completing the dual MPA/MPH degree program in May, are planning a summer 2019 wedding.

One of Danny Benson’s career goals has been to contribute in a substantive way to policies and programs he felt were important. The La Follette School helped put him on the path to achieving that goal.

California’s County of Monterey is implementing several recommendations from a student project in Professor Don Moynihan’s Performance Management class. Kate Battiato (MPA ’07), a management analyst in Monterey County’s Resource Management Agency (RMA), proposed and coordinated the students’ work.

Reflecting on her own journey, Katherine Gehl challenged the La Follette School of Public Affairs’ Class of 2017 to take on challenges big enough that the possibility of failure is real and present.

Two weeks before receiving her master's degree in public affairs (MPA), Karina Virrueta was honored with the 2017 Excellence in Engaged Scholarship Graduate Student award from the Morgridge Center for Public Service at UW–Madison. Associate Director Hilary Shager nominated Virrueta for her dedication to community-based learning and research.
