The fellows, who join the editorial staff during the year, contribute to the magazine by serving as “Undergraduate” columnists and by initiating story ideas, writing news and feature items, and helping to edit copy before publication. Cep, of Cordova, Maryland, lives in Pforzheimer House and concentrates in English. She plans to write a creative thesis, and spent much of the summer reading, writing, and talking to watermen on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, who figure in her prospective novel; she also worked at the New Republic. She writes for the Crimson and the Advocate, and has been active in Strong Women Strong Girls, a mentoring organization; the Ann Radcliffe Trust; the Memorial Church, teaching Sunday school; the Signet Society; and the operations of the Advocate. Lind, of Lake Forest, Illinois, who is entering Winthrop House, is a social studies concentrator. A Crimson editor, she is also involved in the Institute of Politics Citizenship Tutoring Program, the Kuumba Singers, and the Crimson Key Society. During the summer, she worked at SGA Youth and Family Services in Chicago. The fellowships are supported by Jonathan J. Ledecky ’79, M.B.A. ’83, and named in honor of his mother.
