Christine Heenan named Harvard VP for Government, Community and Public Affairs — The Harvard University Gazette
Ms. Heenan will replace Alan Stone in a position where she will greatly be able to influence Harvard's relationship with its Allston neighbors. In addition to being founder and president of the Clarendon Group she served as Communications Director for the Hillary Clinton for President campaign earlier this year.
Many people have suggested that a meaningful, mutually beneficial partnership with Harvard could focus on improving elementary and high school education in Allston. So it is a pleasant coincidence that, according to this profile in Rhode Island Monthly, Ms. Heenan has a deep interest in urban education and would "love to be directly involved in the motivating and educating of kids."
