ANS Announces the 2019 Glenn T. Seaborg Congressional Fellow
The American Nuclear Society announced Alyse M. Scurlock, P.E. as the 2019 Glenn T. Seaborg Congressional Fellow during the ANS Annual Meeting in Philadelphia, PA.
Since the inception in 2000, this prestigious Fellowship has provided an experience to learn firsthand how legislative policymaking affects the nuclear science, energy, and technology. The year-long Fellowship is a unique opportunity to work directly with members of Congress and their staff on important policy decisions, while developing an entirely new skill set on Capitol Hill.
“I am humbled and excited to join the distinguished group of ANS members making an impact from inside the halls of Congress,” said Alyse upon learning of her selection. “It is important for nuclear power to be a key part of a clean energy future, and I am excited to help move these issues forward.”
Alyse is a nuclear engineer at Duke Energy in Charlotte, NC, where she has worked since 2014. She has a B.S. and M.S. in nuclear engineering from the University of Florida. She has been an ANS member since 2009, and has demonstrated her leadership skills through active involvement in the Society. Her contributions includes program chair for the Young Members Group and education chair for the Nuclear Criticality Safety Division. She has also been an active member and an officer of the ANS Piedmont-Carolinas Local Section.
“Alyse‘s enthusiasm, technical expertise, and educational experience will be key assets during her time on the Hill.” said Harsh S. Desai, chair of the Congressional Fellowship Committee.
Her year-long term will begin on January 1, 2019, in Washington, D.C.
