Career Path: Cook Leadership Fellow
Selma Tucker packed a lot into his four years at Grand Valley - including studying abroad in the United Kingdom and attending the inauguration of President Barack Obama. Now he works for the City of Grand Rapids in the information technology department as well as doing work with the city's office of energy and sustainability.
Tucker majored in political science and public administration, and was one of four students selected to travel to Washington D.C. to attend an academic seminar through the Washington Center. The trip coincided with Obama's inauguration. "It was an amazing experience," Tucker said. "It's a moment I'll be able to share with my children and my grandchildren."
Tucker is a Cook Leadership Fellow at the Hauenstein Center for Presidential Studies and a member of two honor societies; Omicron Delta Kappa, a leadership society, and Pi Alpha Alpha, the honor society for public administrators.
