Second Generation Peace Corps

Anna Williams ’10 is a Peace Corps volunteer who began her two-year commitment this past June. Her title is Education Volunteer, and she will live and work in a community in the West African country of Togo to encourage critical thinking in the classroom, and integrate issues like health education and environmental awareness into English classes. Her story appears in an article (“Piece by Peace: The Peace Corps Volunteers of Tomorrow”), which credits her dream of serving in the Peace Corps in part to her K study abroad experience in Dakar, Senegal. The fact that she’s a second generation Peace Corps volunteer no doubt was an influence as well. She shares a Peace Corps experience with her father and her mother, who both served as volunteers in Tunisia. She shares a K experience with her father, Bill Williams, a member of the Kalamazoo College Class of 1971.
