Six from the Class of 2018 Named Haverford House Fellows
Sabea Evans, Callie Kennedy, Claire Michel, TJ von Oehsen, Sara Ozawa, and Jason Sanchez will spend next year working at Philadelphia nonprofits and strengthening connections between the College and the city.
The Center for Peace and Global Citizenship (CPGC) has named its 2018–2019 Haverford House Fellows. These six seniors, who were selected for the fellowship for their commitment to social justice and community action, will spend this next year after their College graduation working four days per week with nonprofit organizations in the Philadelphia region and sharing a house together in the West Philadelphia neighborhood of Cedar Park. The fellows, who serve as liaisons between the CPGC and social action agencies, as well as collaborators with Haverford community members, will dedicate their fifth workday to projects that engage the College with local groups devoted to creating a more socially just, healthy, and vibrant community.
The 2018–2019 Haverford House Fellows and their host organizations are:
- Linguistics major, religion minor, and Africana studies concentrator Sabea Evans will work for the Center for Hunger-Free Communities
- Anthropology major, Spanish minor, and peace, justice, and human rights concentrator Callie Kennedy will work for Puentes de Salud
