Peace Corps

I am stepping down from HLAAKC’s Steering Committee at the end of this month.  I have enjoyed my time on the committee and have enjoyed getting to know all of you!

I have been offered the opportunity to serve in the Peace Corps.  I am leaving for Kenya in October where I will have training for 3 months before staring my 24 month service.  I will be a Deaf Educator and a Behavior Communicator.

I will be a teacher at a school for the deaf in Kenya.  I will also be working with the deaf/hard-of-hearing community to increase AIDS/HIV awareness and prevention.  I will also be given the opportunity to develop a project of my own.  As a genetic counselor I am hoping to develop a project that ties in with genetics.

You can be sure I will continue to follow this blog, I am excited for HLAAKC’s future!

Hope to see you all at our next meeting this Saturday and at our September social event at the National Archives on September 24th.

  1. Kelly, you will be missed but your new friends in Kenya are so lucky to have you, You will continue to do great things and I am very proud of the young woman you have become. First thing, teach the Kenya children how to wave the wheat and chant “ROCK CHALK JAYHAWK” and if you ever want to try Remote CART in Kenya, send me an e-mail and we can try it out. Works great overseas! Keep in touch!

  2. Thank you Jeanette! I would love to try remote CART overseas, I will let you know if a situation arises where it would be helpful.

    Everyone in Kenya will know all about the Jayhawks. 🙂

    Let’s stay in touch.

We love hearing from you!
