Welcoming Newman Civic Fellow: Cassandra Griffin

Cassandra Griffin, who prefers to be known as Sandy, is a Junior at the University of Nebraska Omaha and is majoring in political science, with a concentration in government affairs and civic engagement. Sandy is an active student and advocate, and dedicates her time to helps others.

She was nominated by Harnoor Singh, her supervisor at UNO’s Student Service and Leadership – The Collaborative. There, she works as a volunteer lead for the Signature Service Days and is partnered with Planned Parenthood for her project.

What Sandy is looking forward to the most about the fellowship is “meeting other Newman Civic Fellows and learning about their experiences and the work they’ve done in their communities!”

She has also stated she hopes to “gain insight on how best to help my community and what more I could be doing to be a more effective advocate for people.”

Congratulations and welcome to the Newman Civic Fellowship, Sandy!
