Evan Cardinal Named Brogan Scholar at Albright College

Reading, PA – Albright College political science and international relations major, Evan Cardinal of Reading, Pa., has been named the college’s second annual Brogan Scholars Endowed Internship award recipient.

Named in honor of retired Albright political science professor Tom Brogan, Ph.D., Brogan scholarships are designed to help exceptional students fund unpaid policy or government-related internships.

With interests spanning from human rights to clean water, Cardinal is passionate about environmental racism, alternative energy and conservation. He is both president of Albright’s World Affairs Club and vice president of Environmental Campus Outreach. In addition, he serves as a peer tutor and resident assistant at Albright, and as a religious school teacher at Reform Congregation Oheb Sholom.

Not one to waste opportunities, Cardinal spent last summer interning as an international relations representative with a non-governmental organization in Tel Aviv, Israel, with a goal of protecting marine areas of the Mediterranean Sea. For this summer, he is exploring credited summer internship opportunities in the nation’s capital with the help of Albright trustee and alumnus John P. McAllister ’94, managing partner with McAllister & Quinn in Washington, D.C.

As a political science professor, Tom Brogan encouraged his students to engage in the real world in order to prepare for the realities of careers in politics, government, law, education and public service. Brogan Scholars Endowed Internships were created by several Albright alumni to honor Brogan in a way that was fitting for his passion and devotion to students.
