Brittany Misitano ’11
Brittany Misitano is in her final year at Widener University Commonwealth Law School with coursework focused in Business Law. Law school has afforded her many opportunities to engage with her community, including interning as a law clerk for the Honorable Judge Anne Covey on the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania, and during the Fall Semester she was an intern in the Office of Cabinet Affairs at the White House. As an intern for President Donald J. Trump, Brittany’s duties included facilitating United States Cabinet meetings by coordinating venues and providing logistical support; participating in speaker series events which featured Senior Administration officials; drafting policy and legal analysis memorandums on current affairs; and assisting in organizing events for United States Cabinet Members and Agency Officials. Brittany was also able to tour the US Capitol and Supreme Court Building, and watch President Trump and the First Lady depart on Marine One on the South Lawn. She is pictured with President Trump (over the President’s shoulder in the red dress).
Personally, Brittany values volunteering, and as a Penn State alumna (’15) she has volunteered with the Paterno Family Beaver Stadium Run for Special Olympics Pennsylvania for the last five years. In 2016, she and her family were honored to receive the Special Olympics Pennsylvania Community Hero Award.
