Peace Corps at 50 Honors Hunter for Its Contributions

The Peace Corps celebrates the 50th anniversary of its founding next month, and throughout that long history Hunter has been a leader in supplying volunteers. Since 1961, 350 graduates have joined, which places Hunter first among all CUNY colleges and near the top among schools in the nation as a source of recruits. Right now, seven Hunter graduates are working overseas, and four are in training.

In gratitude for the college’s contributions, representatives of the Peace Corps’ New York Regional Office visited Hunter on August 3 to present the Office of Career Development Services with a Certificate of Appreciation. Hunter was lauded for the high quality of its recruits and Keith Okrosy, a CDS career counselor who works closely with students and Peace Corps representatives, was singled out for praise. Also joining the event was Kenny Guay, a January 2011 graduate with a major in comparative literature, who is now in training for a post in Central or South America where he will work in water and sanitation extension.

The Peace Corps will continue its recruitment of Hunter students at the College Career Expo on November 9.
