Dr. Bethany Albertson, an associate professor of government and Bonner’s thesis advisor, encouraged him through it all. The two share a passion for politics and recently co-authored an op-ed on the importance of political debates in Texas. Albertson, an expert in political psychology, was recruited to UT on a fellowship.

On the Road
Bonner is grateful for the life-changing opportunities he’s had to learn outside the lecture hall. “UT has given me unique and incredible experiences — an amazing road trip for my thesis, an internship at NASA, the chance to work in Washington D.C. — that build on what I’ve learned in the classroom.”
“Charlie is a future leader,” said Albertson. “He’s going to make his mark.”
A future leader
“I want to live by the idea that if one voice can change a room, a room can change a community, and a community can change the world.”
