Atlanta City Council President Ceasar C. Mitchell selected to the 2013 class of Henry Crown Fellows

 ATLANTA- The Aspen Institute announced Tuesday that Atlanta City Council President Ceasar C. Mitchell has been selected to the 2013 Class of Henry Crown Fellows.

 The Henry Crown Fellowship is a two-year program that engages the next generation of leaders in the challenge of community-spirited leadership.

 Council President Mitchell will join 19 other leaders from across the country for a series of four structured seminars and one individual leadership project.  The 2013 Class of Henry Crown Fellows includes entrepreneurial, business and non-profit leaders from a diverse cross section of industries. 

 “I am truly humbled at the opportunity to take part in one of the country’s most prestigious fellowship programs,” said Council President Mitchell. “I look forward to the wealth of knowledge and insight to be gained from being among a group of accomplished professionals.”

 Henry Crown Fellows from previous years include Delaware Governor Jack Markell, city of Newark Mayor Cory Booker and CNN anchor Suzanne Malveaux.

 The Henry Crown Fellowship Program was established in 1997 to honor the life and career of Chicago industrialist Henry Crown (1896-1990). The Fellowship is the flagship program within the Aspen Global Leadership Network (AGLN).
