Did you see the article in Foreign Policy that listed Hill staffers to watch this year?  The article, found here, describes the 2011 Spring Congressional Fellowship Program at the Partnership for a Secure America (PSA), a centrist, security-minded policy organization here in Washington.  The program aims “to  build a ‘next generation' of foreign affairs and national security experts equipped to respect differences, build common ground and achieve U.S. national interests," PSA explains.  With increased focus on energy security in the news these days, we’re proud to note that one of our own, Senior Professional Staff Member Jonathan Black, made the list.
