AHI Undergraduate Fellow Alex Rued

AHI Undergraduate Fellow Alex Rued has accepted a position at the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC).  A non-partisan organization founded in 1973, ALEC has as one of its core missions the cultivation throughout the United States of the “Jeffersonian principles of free markets, limited government, federalism, and individual liberty.” ALEC conducts a policy- making program that unites members of the public and private sectors in partnership to support these principles.

Ms. Rued majored in government with a minor in Chinese at Hamilton College. She participated in the College’s program in Washington D.C. headed by AHI Senior Fellow Ted Eismeier and studied in Beijing during her junior year. While in Washington, Ms. Rued applied to the Koch Associates Program. After rigorous and multiple interviews, she learned that the Koch Program had opened a portal for her at ALEC as a telecommunications analyst.

“Alex Rued is one of the best students I have taught at Hamilton College,” observed Professor Eismeier. “She excelled in both the academic component of the Program in Washington and in her internship at the American Enterprise Institute, where her work earned the highest praise from supervisor. Alex will make a mark in the world of public policy. Articulate and quietly confident, when she speaks, people listen.”

The AHI congratulates Ms. Rued on this splendid achievement and thanks the Koch Program for making this exciting opportunity available.
