Former King Hall Outreach Program (KHOP) student Elva Linares has been named a 2010-2011 Polanco Fellow by the California Latino Legislative Caucus Institute of Public Policy (CLLCIPP).
According to the CLLCIPP website, “Named in honor of former California State Senator Richard G. Polanco, a founder and the chair of the California Latino Caucus Institute, the Polanco Fellowship program provides leadership training and development for a select group college graduates. Considered one of the premier public policy fellowships in the nation, the Polanco Fellowship is a yearlong placement that includes leadership training at the world-renowned Center for Creative Leadership in La Jolla, an annual Institute Orientation at UCLA, a four-month placement in a major state agency in Sacramento such as CalPERS and, then, the heart of the Fellowship, an eight-month placement in the Capitol office of a state legislator.”
