Six from the Class of 2017 Named Haverford House Fellows
Madison Skerritt, Charlie Hale, Lynnie Woodruff, Chloe Wang, Katy Frank, and Deedee Eisape are the 2017–2018 class of Haverford House Fellows, and, as such, will spend next year exploring global citizenship in Philadelphia and strengthening connections between the College and the city.
The Center for Peace and Global Citizenship (CPGC) has named its 2017–2018 Haverford House Fellows. These six seniors, who were selected for the fellowship for their commitment to social justice and community action, will spend the year after graduation 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, 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.
