VISTA Spotlight: Maggie Reilly



My name is Maggie Reilly and I am currently serving as an AmeriCorps VISTA at Southern New Hampshire University’s Center for Community Engaged Learning. I do all things service from helping with our service learning program, to educating our students on college access programming and messaging. I am originally from Plympton, MA but went to Southern New Hampshire University to get my Bachelors in Communications. While working for my undergrad, I worked at the Center for Community Engaged Learning as a student worker. This is where I fell in love with service and realized I wanted to incorporate service into my career. I went on two Alternative Break trips, and was a service learning coordinator. I decided to graduate a semester early, and I was able to stay with Center as their VISTA. My year is almost over as a VISTA, and I am finally going to have to say goodbye to SNHU and the Center for Community Engaged Learning. I am happy I was able to stay at SNHU another year, and continue promoting service! #iamvista #americorpsworks
