Peace Corps Volunteers Share Experiences with UNCW Students

Monday, November 06, 2017

Five Peace Corps volunteers shared personal experiences with UNCW students during a panel discussion on Nov. 16. The event was sponsored by the UNCW Peace Corp Prep Program. Panelists included WCE faculty member Allen Lynn; UNCW faculty members Scott Juall, department of Foreign Languages and Katie Peel, English; and WCE alumni Greg and Kevina Casaletto.

Approximately 30 students attended the event, held in Leutze Hall.

A highlight of the evening was a discussion surrounding the question, "Who were you before, during, and after your Peace Corps service?” The consensus was that all panelists feel they are immeasurably better people for having served.
