        Hi Mari,
        Yes, it is truly a special year to enter the Peace Corps. It is especially so for me because I was a senior in high school when President Kennedy signed Executive Order 10924 creating the PC. I wanted to serve back then, but had to go to college. Well, I went to Penn State and then life got in the way – – – marriage, then grad school (UNC-CH), then post grad school (Temple Univ.), and then children. The children are now grown and I can, at last, try to fulfill my life-long goal of serving in the PC. I was nominated last June, received medical clearance last December and I am one of the many nominees currently awaiting an invitation. During the years since the PC began, I have personally met many RPCVs and have learned first-hand about the changes the PC has gone through. I believe that the PC has changed to meet the challenges present all over the world and that it is even more important and more challenging to serve now than ever before.
        I would like to print your infographic for my personal PC file. May I have your approval to share your creativity with others?
        Best wishes to you and Paul!
