Two state foresters receive NASF Foundation Harvard fellowship

The NASF Foundation, with the assistance of the USDA Forest Service State and Private Forestry, has selected Missouri State Forester Lisa Allen and Ohio State Forester David Lytle as fellowship recipients for the Program for Senior Executives in State and Local Government at the John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University. Traditionally, the Foundation only awards one fellowship a year, however the NASFF Board of Directors decided to fund an additional fellowship this year.

The fellowship supports a three-week session focused on exercising leadership and uses a case study approach in designing solutions to real life problems. Participants gain expertise in strategy and political management, creating public value, negotiation, crisis management, financial stewardship and internal capacity and performance management.
