It’s official! Last week, Michael Bennet ’87, son of former Wesleyan President Douglas Bennet ’59, was appointed to the Senate. Bennet takes over for Senator Ken Salazar who is now Obama’s Interior Secretary.
In a recent Washington Post article, Bennet reflects on his father’s influence.
“He said find things that interest you, that compel you, and when it’s time to move on, something else will present itself,” Bennet said. “In the end, it doesn’t matter what job a person ends up in if it’s an opportunity to make a difference.”
