COMPACT VISTA PROJECT COMES TO A CLOSE
The COMPACT AmeriCorps VISTA project is wrapping up in June! For the past 12 month COMPACT has hosted two AmeriCorps VISTA members to support McLean County’s overarching goal to have 60% of the population with a postsecondary credential by 2025 while focusing on equitable access to success. The VISTA members service focused on COMPACT’s ability to serve more people and new populations, while also expanding the types of workforce development services provided.
Stacy Bile and Rebecca Forsythe served as our Resource Development and Community Engagement VISTA members. While this year was a unique service experience COMPACT would like to congratulate both these women on their dedication to service in McLean County.
Both will be focused on continuing their education,. Stacy will be pursuing her Masters Degree from ISU this fall in College Student Personnel Administration and will hold an assistantship in the office of International Programs at Heartland Community College.
Rebecca will be serving another VISTA term through Heartland Community College and will assist with the development of a new Office of Service-Learning and Civic Engagement while working to publish her thesis and apply for Ph.D. programs.
Congratulation to Stacy and Rebecca!
