This April marks our 15th Anniversary and in celebration of this special occasion, each month we will be featuring a photo from our archive. Above – our first cohort of Energy Graduate Group students back in 2017. Many of these students are now energy professionals in government, the private sector and academia.
We are excited to welcome Kayla Levering to the Institute. Kayla is our new program manager.

Kayla received her Bachelor’s Degree in business administration from Sacramento State University and has experience working in office and event management. We look forward to introducing you all to her soon!
