SACO – Senator Justin Chenette is headed to Harvard University this summer after being
awarded a full ride fellowship.
Chenette, who is serving his second term representing Saco, Old Orchard Beach, Hollis,
Limington, and Buxton in the Senate, will attend the Senior Executives in State & Local
Government program at the John F. Kennedy School of Government in July.
The 3-week intensive leadership development program is designed for all senior-level state and
local government officials. The goal is to hone skills and further the leadership potential of
accomplished individuals from across the United States.
“This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to enhance my leadership, teambuilding, policy,
and communication skills from colleagues around the country,” says Sen. Chenette. “All the best
practices I learn at Harvard will be directly applied to my work in the legislature to better serve
our community and state.”
