I’m proud and humbled to be receiving the National Peace Corps Association’s 2018 Sargent Shriver Award for Distinguished Humanitarian Service.
My early Peace Corps experience in Sierra Leone remains the foundation for everything I’ve done.
This award really goes to Sherbro Foundation’s local community partner, The Center for Community Empowerment & Transformation. CCET’s creative ideas and leadership have achieved so much.
They hope to encourage others on community-led rural development and share their success stories. It’s been my privilege to work with them.
