Brenau Scholar Katherine Fuller

Introducing Sen. Fuller

At 19, Brenau Scholar Katherine Fuller has mapped out a 30-year course to the U.S. Senate. At Harris County High School, the Ellerslie, Georgia, native was state governor in Key Club International. She worked in campaigns for State Sen. Josh McCoon and U.S. Sen. David Perdue. The political science and legal studies major is Student Government Association freshman class president, admission ambassador, a Phi Mu member, and a participant in the Brenau Association of Mediators and Legal Scholars. The political conservative unexpectedly lists among her idols two iconic liberal first ladies: Eleanor Roosevelt and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.

She planned to follow in the footsteps of Columbus, Georgia, Mayor Teresa Tomlinson and attend Sweetbriar College in Virginia. However, with that institution’s financial woes last year, she switched to the alma mater of yet another of her idols – her mother, Amy Amos Phillips, WC ’96.

“We visited Brenau and I fell in love with it,” she said. “I knew instantly it was where I needed to be. My mom is the strongest woman I know, so why wouldn’t I want to go where she went?”
