Erin Lehmberg, a Rome resident and Georgia State University master of arts degree candidate, is this year’s Lyle Mamer Fellowship recipient. The $1,000 fellowship, awarded by the Women’s International Network of Utility Professionals, is presented to an outstanding student pursuing a degree affiliated with the utility industry.

Lehmberg will begin classes in late August. She is a 2017 summa cum laude graduate of Berry College, having earned a Bachelor of Science degree in economics and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish with a minor in business. She plans to major in economics at Georgia State.

Inspired by her experiences studying and working in Central and South America while in school and as a graduate, Lehmberg hopes to effect positive change in the utility industry on a worldwide scale.

Lehmberg plans to graduate from Georgia State in May 2021.
