Yesterday we celebrated last year’s AmeriCorps Leadership and Conservation Corpsmember Rachel Hansen as she accepted her award for Mile High Youth Corps’ Corpsmember of the Year. The Colorado Youth Corps Association hosted the 2009 Champions and Corpsmembers of the Year at the gold-domed Capitol Building.
Rachel proved herself as a leader and hard worker over her ten months of service. She worked with her fellow Corpsmembers installing energy and water-saving devices, worked in local and state parks doing land conservation and represented her crew on the Leadership Council. She has moved on to another AmeriCorps position in Florida and we’re wishing her all the best! Congratulations Rachel!
