Over 140 fans of the Peace Corps, including more than 50 RPCVs, attended the February 25th PC week event at UM to join UM President Donna Shalala and Acting Peace Corps Director Carrie Hessler-Radelet. The evening started with on-line video conversations with three PCVs serving overseas. Carrie Hessler-Radelet talked about her experience meeting the President of Sierra Leone, who talked of a PCV named Sharon whom he knew when he was eleven, and Hessler-Radelet was thrilled to again meet Sharon Alvarado of Key Largo (Sierra Leone 1964-66) who was in the audience. RPCV Linda Lubin gave an impromptu and moving talk about her experience as a PCV in Mombasa, Kenya (2004-2006), in response to a question from a student interested in joining the Peace Corps. RPCVSF's Founding Director and Legal Counsel Greg Zell (Nigeria 1962-1964) was honored and recognized as the first living graduate of UM to have served in the Peace Corps.
