County Service Group Helps At-Risk Children
September 1st, 2004 @ 6:00 am

The Independent Florida Alligator, the student newspaper at the University of Florida, ran an article on September 1, 2004, which quoted mom and talked about her work with Americorps. She was so very proud of the work she did there. She sent me a copy of the issue, of course.

Project Graduation
June 1st, 2002 @ 3:15 am

6:15 In a couple of hours, I have to start getting ready to go to Project Graduation at the O’Connell Center to recruit members for next year.

A Job!
February 21st, 2002 @ 12:00 pm

I got a job today — with the Alachua County School Board and Americorps. At less than 2/3 of what I was making at Cox. What am I thinking? How the hell am I going to do this financially? I guess I have 2 or 3 choices — a part-time job, a home business (a […]
