at Hillel, NEXTGen Epic event, "graduating" class
of interns at a Jewish agency ... there's a budding romance.

portfolio of scholarship and leadership and, just
as importantly, a tremendous commitment to
Michigan's public ethos:'
Regent Laurence Deitch says, "We were privi-
leged to have a pool of extraordinary candidates,
and Dr. Schlissel was simply the best of the best.
