UPDATE: 2014 Ron Paul Scholar – Meghan Pettini


In 2014, Meghan Pettini was the inaugural award winner of the Ron Paul Legacy Scholarship. Since then she says she has had a very busy and wonderful year.

Meghan is now working full time at the Heritage Foundation as the Executive Assistant to the Group Vice President of Policy Promotion, where she assists the VP with administrative duties and fellowship programs. She is very excited to be working for such a prestigious organization. She is hoping to start a lecture series for undergraduate students to discuss the roots of the American political tradition in the next few months, something that she is very passionate about.

Just last month, Meghan graduated from The Catholic University of America with a degree in Political Theory, where she received the politics department’s award for academic excellence. However, Meghan has planned to attend graduate school all along, and she starting a Master’s program in Political Theory at CUA starting in the Spring of 2016. She is hopeful that upon complete of her Master’s that she will go on to a PhD program.

Meghan could not be more grateful for the help she has received from the Foundation and our donors. Just before graduation she wrote to me:

“I really can’t thank you and Campaign for Liberty enough for the honor of being chosen this year for the Ron Paul Scholarship. I still can hardly believe I met Dr. and Senator Paul – it was such an honor. And if not for the generosity of the donors and the Foundation, I doubt that I’d be graduating next week, so thank you from the bottom of my heart.”

We are very proud of Meghan’s accomplishments to this point and cannot wait to see what she will do in the future!
