The Newport Daily News published an article on Wednesday about Vice President Joe Biden’s planned visit to Salve Regina University in August for the launch of Nuala Pell’s leadership program:
NEWPORT- Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. will return to Newport next month to help honor Nuala Pell.
It will be the vice president’s second trip to Newport in four years to honor the Pell family.
Biden, who was vice president- elect at the time, gave a eulogy at the January 2009 funeral of Pell’s husband, the late U.S. Sen. Claiborne Pell. Biden served with Claiborne Pell in the Senate from 1973-96.
On Aug. 22, Biden will be attending the official launch of the Nuala Pell Leadership Program in Public Service by the Pell Center for International Relations and Public Policy at Salve Regina University.
Pell Center Executive Director James Ludes said the threeyear, non-credit program would aim to instill skills in students that will improve their ability to lead in their personal and professional lives.
“We hope to inspire them to take on a greater leadership role … no matter what that might be,” Ludes said. (The program) will give them some real practical skills that will be … resume-able.”
