America Walks Announces Recipients of Walking College Fellowships

After a very competitive selection process,  America Walks staff and Walking College Mentors have identified the 2015 recipients of Walking College Fellowships.


These 25 advocates for walking and walkable communities hail from 22 different states and Palau. They represent large metropolitan areas such as Phoenix, Denver, and Louisville;  cities and towns of all sizes including Boise, ID, Burlington, VT, and Carrizozo, NM (population, 973); multiple-county rural areas; one island-nation; and a military base. About one-third are community advocates, another one-third are made up of public health and planning professionals,  and the remainder include transportation and health care professionals, students and teachers/professors, and local elected officials.

Here is the complete list of the 2015 Walking College Fellows:
We would like to thank all 75  Walking College applicants who invested enormous energy, enthusiasm, and hard work into this process. The high quality of the applications and the great work already going on in communities around the country made it extremely difficult to narrow the field down to the final 25. America Walks is excited to officially begin the Walking College program on Monday June 8.
