2012/2013 Haverford House Fellows Named
The Center for Peace and Global Citizenship (CPGC) has named the 2012-2013 Haverford House Fellows. The six graduating seniors, who were selected for the fellowship because of their commitment to social justice and community action, will spend the next year working four days per week with non-profit organizations in the Philadelphia region and sharing a house together in the West Philadelphia neighborhood of Cedar Park. The fellows will dedicate their fifth workday to projects that serve to engage the College with local groups and people devoted to creating a more socially just, healthy and vibrant community. Haverford House Fellows serve as liaisons between the CPGC and social action agencies and as collaborators with Haverford students, staff and faculty.
The 2012-2013 Haverford House Fellows are:
Meg Bishop, a psychology major, will be an enrollment specialist at Community Partnership School.
Emily Dix, a psychology major, will be a development specialist at Community Partnership School.
Molly Minden, a political science major, will be an employment paralegal at Community Legal Services.
Peter Sacci, a pre-health chemistry major, will be a public health research fellow and program coordinator at Lankenau Institute for Medical Research.
Beatriz Sanchez, a pre-health anthropology major, will be a community-based research fellow at the Center for Hunger-Free Communities, Drexel University School of Public Health.
