Advisor to WECW Radio Station
I co-advised the Elmira College's student-run radio station WECW, which is broadcast on FM dial 107.7 and live at wecw.elmira.edu . I provide technical and media support for the radio station and enjoy working with the WECW student Board of Directors. See the history of WECW in photos.
Returned Peace Corps Volunteer
As a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer from the Congo (I took the photograph to the right in 1971 of a group of children in a rural village on the Equator) I provide a personal perspective on the Peace Corps to Elmira College students. I talk to students individually and give presentations of personal experiences as part of a general information session led by the Peace Corps Regional Recruiter.
Since 1961 when the Peace Corps was founded, 77 Elmira College students have served as volunteers, which is a remarkably high number when compared to colleges much larger. According to data provided by the Peace Corps through 2008, Elmira College students have served in 48 different countries including Senegal, Turkey, Thailand, Guatemala, Peru, and Kenya.
Students interested in learning more about the Peace Corps can contact the Office of Career Services for dates of upcoming recruiting visits or e-mail me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
