Congratulations to our 2017 Sr. Seton Cunneen Fellows!
Kimberly King ’18 is a junior with a major in Business Administration and a minor in Sociology. She will be working at Sasha Bruce Youthwork in Washington, D.C., a non-profit that provides safe housing, life skills and workforce development, and educational opportunities for troubled young people who have been homeless or come from broken homes. Building on her previous experience of working with homeless families and counseling children, Kimberly will mentor youth as well as facilitate interactive groups and workshops this summer as part of her Cunneen Fellowship.
Karrin Thompson ’18 is a junior majoring in English. She will be working at Higher Achievement in Washington, D.C., a non-profit middle-school program that works to close the achievement gap for motivated, yet under-served, students from low-income communities. Karrin’s duties will lie both outside the classroom, in drafting the plans for the Summer Academy and meeting with the senior level staff, and inside the classroom, where she can use innovative means of mentoring and tutoring students in a subject she loves.
Marisela Tobar Henriquez ’18 is a junior majoring in Elementary Education, with a minor in Psychology. She will be working this summer at The Arc Montgomery County at the Karasik and Family, Infant, and Child Care Center, whose mission is to create a sustainable inclusive environment for children with developmental and intellectual disabilities. Drawing on her preparation in education and her extensive work experience and volunteerism in helping children and youth, Marisela will develop inclusive learning environments with an interdisciplinary team of professionals.
