Institute for Public Administration (IPA) graduate public administration fellows Danielle Metcalfe (MPA ’19) and Elizabeth 'Betsey' Suchanic (MPA ’19) have been awarded the International City/County Management Association’s Local Government Early Career Service Certificate. Danielle and Betsey were among only 15 MPA or MPP students selected nationwide to receive this honor. They have received an ICMA certificate, ICMA graduation cords, and are highlighted on the ICMA website.

ICMA’s certificate recognizes graduating students in good academic standing who have completed or are in the process of completing a major service project for a local government organization. Students are nominated by their ICMA student chapter faculty advisors for their outstanding demonstration of a strong commitment to local government.  

Danielle Metcalfe served as the founding president of the University of Delaware's student chapter of ICMA, which was established last September. As a summer 2018 intern with the City of Delaware City, Danielle was instrumental in updating the jurisdiction’s comprehensive plan that provides a blueprint for growth and development. She has been appointed city manager of the City of Delaware City, Delaware and will begin the position in June 2019. 

Betsey was also an active and founding member of UD’s student chapter of ICMA. As a public administration fellow with IPA, Betsey conducted applied research for the Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT). She developed an array of visual tools within the Delaware Complete Communities Planning Toolbox, an online resource for Delaware local governments. In July 2019, Betsey will begin her new role as program manager at the Urban Library Council in Washington, D.C.
