VISTA Spotlight: Glenn Fearnley

Glenn Picture

My name is Glenn Fearnley, and I am serving as an AmeriCorps VISTA at Manchester Community College to develop and coordinate a new Multicultural Center on campus for low income first generation college students.   I am from the small town of Bradford, New Hampshire.  I left New Hampshire to graduate from the School of Oriental and African Studies, part of the University of London, with a degree in the Study of Religions in 2010, and then again to teach English in elementary schools in Japan in 2015.  My project at MCC gives me an amazing opportunity to explore my passion for increasing cultural awareness and languages, and to make sure all students feel comfortable and welcome as they step into higher education.  I also support the Cultural Exchange Club, as an ESL Tutor, and as a member of the Diversity and Equity Team.  My experience as an AmeriCorps VISTA has been absolutely phenomenal.  I am lucky to be a part of a great team of dedicated VISTA’s engaged in exciting programs and with inspiring commitments to service.  At MCC I also get to play a very rewarding role in encouraging students, and being a part of their academic success and persistence, as well as developing programming to increase college persistence and cultural awareness on campus.  #iamvista #americorpsworks

VISTA Spotlight – Kirsten Spooner

By · Comments Comments Off on VISTA Spotlight – Kirsten Spooner

Kirsten Spooner

My name is Kirsten Spooner and I am the AmeriCorps VISTA in the Student Life office focused on civic engagement and college access at NHTI-Concord’s Community College. I am from North Haverhill, NH and enjoy hiking, kayaking and being outdoors. I graduated with my Bachelors of Science in Business Administration with a concentration in Organizational Leadership from Southern NH University. During my time as an undergraduate student, I was heavily involved and dedicated to community service and encouraging my peers to become active citizens. My passion is to end social injustices by educating and coordinating undergraduate students so that they are proactive and make positive impacts on the community. My goal is to be conscientious and intentional with the work that college students and I are doing and assessing how well the work is meeting the needs of the community partner. During my time at NHTI, I have implemented a more formal college access program, supported the Alternative Spring Break Club, and coordinated one-time and on-going service projects for first generation college students with the Office of Student Life. My passion for social change has led me to pursue a Master of Arts in Community Development Policy and Practice at University of New Hampshire this fall and hope to continue on to non-profit leadership and community organizing.

VISTA Spotlight – Lauren Simpson

Lauren

VISTA Spotlight – My name is Lauren E. Simpson, and I am the AmeriCorps VISTA for SAU 6 in Claremont, NH. I was most recently a fourth grade public elementary school teacher in the Kearsarge Regional School District and have been teaching for eleven years. I chose to take some time off from teaching so I could serve as an AmeriCorps VISTA for SAU 6.  A resident of Claremont for the past 11 years, I live with my husband and my rescued greyhound named Dalton. In my free time I love reading, exploring new places, and running. I look forward to working directly with the school district to broaden learning opportunities for Claremont residents. It’s a new experience for me to work to reach families and kids beyond a classroom setting. I know I will miss working directly with students, but I am eager to reach out to kids, their families, and all Claremont people in new ways. I’ve already had some great encounters with those who work hard to make Claremont a great city, and I look forward to doing my part to make Claremont a wonderful place to everyone to learn and grow. #iamvista #AmeriCorpsworks
