The Rockefeller Center is pleased to announce our first Perkins Bass Named Intern, John Howard ’15. Financial support for this public policy internship is provided by the Perkins Bass 1934 Fund. Perkins Bass was a member of the Dartmouth College Class of 1934, and was a key New Hampshire public figure - active in both NH and US politics.
John Howard, Class of 2015, is a native of Salisbury, New Hampshire and is a graduate of Proctor Academy in Andover, N.H. At Proctor, John was valedictorian, a National Merit Scholar, and a United States Department of Education National Presidential Scholar semi-finalist. He captained several sports teams, including two years as varsity soccer captain, winning MVPs and Coaches’ Awards in three different sports. At Dartmouth, John is on the executive board of Mediation at Dartmouth, and he is vice president of the Dartmouth Ethics Society and a member of the Ethics Bowl team. He is an Outing Club Freshman Orientation Trip leader (kayaking). As a freshman, John was selected as one of twenty-five emerging leaders and received a faculty nomination for the Churchill Prize class award.
