Appointment of Lilly's President to the White House

The Office of the US President has announced the appointment of Dierdre P. Connelly, president of US operations at Eli Lilly & Co, to the President's Commission on White House Fellowships.

White House Fellowships offer outstanding young Americans the opportunity to participate in the day-to-day process of governing the nation. The President's Commission is comprised of notable citizens who represent a wide variety of professions, interests and backgrounds. Some commissioners are themselves former fellows.

"The White House Fellowships are America's most prestigious programme for leadership and public service. It's an honour to be selected by the President to serve our country and to help prepare our nation's aspiring public service leaders," Connelly said.

During the fellowship year, fellows participate in an education programme designed to develop their future leadership skills. At the same time, fellows work full time as special assistants to a cabinet member or senior presidential advisor.

Many former fellows have gone on to have a significant impact in their chosen field. William Roper, a fellow from 1982 to 1983, became dean of the University of North Carolina School of Public Health and director of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
