WEBB LYONS ‘06 / Political Science
Student at Yale Law School

I’ve been fortunate to have three great experiences since leaving Birmingham-Southern— working on homelessness legislation and policy in Washington, DC; leading local initiatives on obesity funded by the CDC on behalf of THE COMMUNITY FOUNDATION in Birmingham; and now being a student at Yale Law School. In each of these experiences, I have been prepared to excel, thanks in large part to majoring in political science at BSC.
