District 6 City Councilor Matt O’Malley hosted a meeting on Monday at the Boston City Council with the 2012 John William Ward Public Service Fellows.
The 18 Ward Fellows will be seniors at Boston Latin School (BLS), or recently graduated from the school. The Ward Fellows are working in city and state government for the summer to learn about the inner workings of government and public service.
O'Malley was himself a Ward Fellow when he attended Boston Latin School. He graduated in 1997.
The Ward Fellows Program is named for John William Ward of Dorchester, who graduated from the historical halls of Boston Latin School in 1941. Many may recall Ward for his work on the Ward Commission, which investigated corruption in state government in the late 1970s.
