It’s been quite a run for Will Haskell.
In May of 2018, he graduated from Georgetown University.
Six months later he was elected to the Connecticut State Senate.
Now — just a year later — he’s landed on Forbes Magazine’s “30 Under 30” list.
That’s the annual celebration of rising leaders, in 20 areas ranging from arts, food and sports to “big money” and immigration.
Haskell — just 5 1/2 years out of Staples High School — was selected in the “Law & Policy” category.
Judges included Carrie Goldberg, Jon Huntsman, Laurence Tribe and Michael Tubbs.
Forbes received over 15,000 nominations for the 9th annual list.
It’s a great honor for Haskell.
And he’s only 23 years old. He’s got 6 more chances to repeat.
