Clark Hill Attorney Aurora Abella-Austriaco has been selected as a 2013 Edgar Fellow (
The 40 Fellows, selected from more than 160 nominees, include elected and appointed officials from all levels of government throughout Illinois, as well as Illinoisans who are making their mark in the business world and community activities.
“I am confident these emerging leaders representing the great diversity of our state will become friends. They will realize that they have much in common and appreciate differences in perspective. They will form bonds and sharpen leadership skills that should help them solve problems as they assume even more responsibility,” former Gov. Jim Edgar said. “As we have seen with the 2012 Fellows, relationships and trust build as they recognize they must work together to help promote progress in their communities and our state,” Edgar said.
The Fellows will gather from Aug. 4-7 in Urbana-Champaign under the stewardship of Gov. Edgar and the university’s Institute of Government and Public Affairs (IGPA). During the four-day sessions, the Edgar Fellows will participate in an executive training program that engages them with each other, seasoned practitioners and scholars in major policy areas, such as health care and transportation. After the session ends, Edgar and the Institute will gather the Fellows periodically to continue their education and network building.
