It’s so incredibly humbling to be a Devroy Fellow. To be associated with Ann’s name is an honor in itself, but to also go to a newspaper as prestigious and invaluable to preserving the democracy of this country is incredible. I am very fortunate to be here, and I am reminded of that every single moment of every single day.
