    POTATOES, SPUDS AND TATERS

  • 8/3/2019 CSCE Oct Newsletter

    5/6

    Kiley Phelan recently joined the CSCE sta as an

    AmeriCorps VISTA ocusing on the issue o

    Family Engagement in the local elementary

    schools.

    Kiley grew up in Milord, CT, but spent the past

    our years studying Political Science and English

    at Providence College in Rhode Island. She had

    been involved in service growing up, but really

    attributes her passion to her experiences at

    Providence College. Her reshman year she mad

    a trip to Tijuana, Mexico to build houses or

    amilies struck by poverty. Ater returning rom

    the trip she became involved in the schools

    department or public and community service,

    eventually leading the trip to Mexico her senior

    year. Ater graduation it only made sense to loo

    or an experience that would incorporate her

    interest in service and higher education. She is

    excited to be part o the Champlain College

    community, and is looking orward to a great ye

    o service and civic engagement. Also, she has a

    irrational ear osnakes, but

    really its not a

    joke.

    I am a rst year student here at Champlain

    College majoring in Criminal Justice. I amoriginally rom Springvale, ME but I ended

    up moving to Plano, TX last October. Some

    things you should know about me are that

    I have an extremely irrational ear o rogs,

    I love to rock climb, and have been a ballet

    dancer or 16 years. I you ever see someone

    leaping and twirling about campus, it will

    more than likely be me. My rst interaction

    with The Center was this summer when I

    attended the Bike Montreal Summer Launch

    Program, which was such a great

    experience! Now I get to enjoy being in their

    ofce everyday as a new work study sta

    member. Unlike in high school, where I only

    did the minimum requirement o volunteer

    hours, I plan to be very involved with the

    community during my time here at

    Champlain. So ar I have volunteered at the

    DISMAS House and have helped the

    Catamount Trail Association clear a new ski

    path. And I cant wait to do so much more!
