ALEF Selects Fellows for its Sixth Year (The Harless Family Class)

As the second class of the Appalachian Leadership and Education Foundation (ALEF) graduates and prepares to enter the workforce or go to graduate school, the sixth class – the Harless Family Class – has been selected.  Eleven new high-school graduates who have excelled in academics and have assumed leadership roles in their schools and/or in their communities have been notified that they will enter a four-year program at one of three universities that partner with ALEF. 

“We are all very excited in ALEF to welcome the Harless Family Class.  The young men and women who have been selected to become Fellows in ALEF have extraordinary accomplishments.  They have demonstrated both academic agility and leadership skills that make them a natural fit for our program,” said General (ret) Robert H. “Doc” Foglesong, President and Founder of ALEF.
