Rev. Frederick J. Streets, the Carl and Dorothy Bennet Professor of Pastoral Counseling at Wurzweiler School of Social Work, was appointed to the board of trustees of the Fund for Theological Education. Rev. Streets was one of four members, all church and education leaders, to be elected by the Association of Theological Schools. He will serve a three-year term, advancing the fund’s mission to support a new generation of young leaders for vocations in pastoral ministry and theological scholarship. The fund annually awards more than $1.5 million in fellowships and leadership development opportunities to talented undergraduate, seminary and doctoral students.

Rev. Streets was also recently one of 22 Connecticut residents to be selected as a 2010 Health Leadership Fellow by the Connecticut Health Foundation, the state‚Äôs largest independent health philanthropy association. According to Patricia Baker, the president and CEO of the foundation, each of the the fellows possesses the qualities and experience necessary to effect changes in Connecticut’s health systems that will improve the health of the state’s residents.
