Christopher Laconi '05 wins Harvard Kennedy School fellowship

A year away from academe proved no disadvantage for Christopher Laconi ’05. Shortly before graduation, Laconi was accepted by Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government to pursue a master’s in public policy. But Laconi, a Rhodes Scholarship finalist, deferred matriculation one year so that he could travel in Europe “for work and pleasure” and then consult for nonprofits in Boston.
