Princeton grad one of 15 White House fellows

    The President’s Commission on White House Fellowships has announced the 15-member 2012-2013 Class of White House Fellows, and a Princeton University graduate is among them.

    Chris Domencic is a Lieutenant Commander in the United States Navy and a U.S. Navy SEAL who’s been deployed to Central and South America, Africa, Europe, and the Middle East.
    He’s got an M.P.P. from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University, not to mention four Bronze Stars.

    He joins 14 other Fellows selected “based on a record of professional achievement, evidence of leadership potential, and a proven commitment to public service.”

    And though the Export, Pa., native isn’t exactly local, Domencic is the only one from the tri-state area chosen for a fellowship.
