Alumna is Front and Center in Washington, D.C.
In January 1997, as a Bentley freshman, Kate Cyrul ’00 took a bus from campus to Washington, D.C., to stand in the crowd for President Bill Clinton’s second inauguration. She was on hand again for Barack Obama’s swearing-in, admittedly with better seats.
Cyrul arrived at the history-making occasion by way of Ohio. Last fall, the nine-year veteran of Washington politics took a leave from her job with Iowa Sen. Tom Harkin to manage an Obama field office in Cleveland.
