Snapchat #OppStories: Jacob Miller

by Jacob Miller   •  

Follow me as I tour through our nation’s capital! I am working for Opportunity Nation during my Harry S. Truman scholarship Summer Institute. The Truman Scholarship is a living memorial to President Truman and annually selects approximately 60 young people committed to public service. I am grateful to be a member of the Truman community and even more grateful to spend my summer working for Opportunity Nation.

I will be spending today in the Supreme Court and meeting Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, as well as, meeting numerous prominent public service leaders. During the next two days I will tour and meet with people at the Pentagon and Capitol Hill.
