Fitzarnaz (Fitz) Vaudeville Drummond, the May 2006 Valedictorian, has been awarded a Corporate Treasury Fellowship at Goldman Sachs in London through the City Fellowship program.
The program enables young American minority financiers to gain experience and knowledge of global capital markets with Goldman Sachs investment bank.
Drummond sailed through a demanding review process, according to Dr. Ray Raymond, a former British diplomat and co-founder/executive director of the City Fellowship program, and was chosen as the top candidate from a group of 18 finalists from across the country.
Applicants must submit an academic transcript, an essay, strong letters of recommendation and sit for an hour-long interview, Raymond said.
"Fitz Drummond sparkles. He is one of the most exceptional City Fellows we have ever chosen," said Raymond. "He has that truly rare combination of intellectual brilliance, academic and personal discipline, outstanding professional expertise, grace, modesty and maturity."
The fellowship is initially a one-year, performance-based contract. After the first year, those fellows who are hired permanently by Goldman can stay with the firm in London for up to five years.
Drummond was a double major in finance and management at New Paltz and was active in numerous campus organizations.
