Parkside is Community Partner of the Year
Rachel Horton White, Director of Parkside Neighborhood Center, was honored as USM's Community Partner of the Year at the Student Involvement Awards Gala on May 3rd. With a long history of partnership, including its inception through a grant written by USM faculty member Dr. Kim Moody, Parkside provides service learning and internship opportunities for USM students from nursing, social work, education, and more. Parkside's Night Light after school program is staffed in large part by USM students, and the King-Parkside After School Collaborative (KPAC) was begun as a project by USM graduate student Sherry Whittemore. Rachel Horton White works actively with faculty and students to support their service and learning at Parkside. The USM office of Community Service Learning is pleased to thank and honor Rachel Horton White and the Parkside Neighborhood Center as our Community Partner of the Year!
