2021-2022 Luce Scholar

Harrison Nugent is a summa cum laude graduate of Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service, where he majored in International Politics with a focus on national security issues. The grandson of a farmer and a truck driver, and the son of a U.S. Army veteran, Harrison grew up in Pineville, Louisiana where he lived until college. At Georgetown, he was a student body senator for the Class of 2020 and a manager for the Men’s Basketball program. His senior thesis analyzed the evolution of the Fourth Amendment as a judicial standard for warrantless surveillance practices. Through internships for House Speaker Paul Ryan, the White House Historical Association, and Senator Bill Cassidy, Harrison developed his love of policy and civic engagement. He currently works on the health policy team for D.C.-based public relations firm Venn Strategies, but hopes to attend law school in the future with the aspiration of being the Assistant Attorney General for National Security in the Department of Justice.
