CTC Ten Foundation is excited to announce our 2017 fellows, Elizabeth Clinton and returning for a second year Liam Connolly. Learn more about Elizabeth and Liam below!

Liam Connolly
Liam has been a beneficiary of sport for his whole life. Having played NCAA DIII soccer in university, coached in South Korea, and now with a year of program design experience with CTC Ten and AMANDLA EduFootball in South Africa, Liam is committed to the power of sport in promoting education and inclusion around the world. Liam is remaining with the CTC Ten Foundation and AMANDLA EduFootball for an additional year, excited to deepen his understanding of the South African context and the ways sport can more seriously address systems that promote exclusion and unchecked animosity between people.

Elizabeth Clinton
Elizabeth graduated with a degree in International Relations from the University of Delaware in May 2016. As a long time runner and the President of UD’s club cross-country and track & field teams, she has always been interested in the role of sport in leadership development, especially for women and young girls. After studying Arabic in Morocco, Elizabeth co-founded an initiative called Tessria (meaning accelerate, in Arabic), to teach Moroccan women and girls leadership skills through running, and to encourage women to be more active in political, economic, and social spheres.
