We are excited to welcome Paige Wierikko as our Program Intern from Sterling College!
Paige is originally from Sheboygan, Wisconsin but has done an extensive amount of traveling and nonprofit work while she served with AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC), which is based out of Vicksburg, Mississippi. Some of her work included working with Habitat for Humanity Mississippi Gulf Coast, the Great Smokey Mountains National Park in Tennessee, the St. Bernard Project in Chalmette, Louisiana and St. Johns River Water Management District in Central Florida. She moved to Vermont in July 2011 to attend Sterling College and currently works for a local store in Craftsbury as well as Bonnieview Farm, milking sheep and making cheese, all the while mentoring students at the local school. Yes, she is a busy person!
Paige plans to graduate with a bachelor's degree in Fall of 2012 with a degree in Non Profit Management and Sustainable Development Education, but in the meantime, we are very glad to have her on our team here at the Center for an Agricultural Economy!
