Recent Fairmont State University graduate, Kurtis Dennison, will be leading a session on his experience with the Peace Corps at 2 p.m. Friday, Sept. 22, in Multimedia A in the Ruth Ann Musick Library.
After graduating in 2014 with a degree in theatre arts, Dennison served with AmeriCorps Energy Express and AmeriCorps VISTA to develop community theater activities in Grafton, West Virginia. He went on to volunteer with the Peace Corps, serving in Rwanda from 2015 through 2017.
Four seniors were inducted into the Beta Omega Chapter of Sigma Tau Delta, the international English honorary, on August 27, according to Dr. James Matthews, the faculty sponsor for the chapter at Fairmont State.
Chelsi L. Latocha, Alyssa N. Lloyd-Hanisch, V. Grace Rine, and Thomas White received the distinction at the Folklife Center before family and faculty. Matthews told the assembly, “These students are our success stories.”
Fairmont State students spend summer doing all sorts of things from jobs to vacations. Kira N. Guier, an honors student from Kearneysville, West Virginia, studied this summer at The Washington Center and interned at DC127.
Kira, a junior, is double majoring in criminal justice and history.
