Etta joined Christ the King Service Corps in August, after studying philosophy and political science (so, naturally, Thomas Aquinas is her favorite saint) at Manhattanville College in her home state of New York. She’s splitting her time at CKSC between Christ the King School and St. Christine’s Christian Services, and is looking forward to being a presence around the parish, especially for the kids. In her free time, Etta can be caught listening to showtunes or knitting… and usually both at once.
Jenny joined Christ the King Service Corps in August. Jenny is from Somers, NY and graduated with a degree in early and primary education from The University of Scranton this May. She teaches fourth grade at Christ the King School. She spent a semester in Ecuador building her Spanish fluency and teaching at a local school. In her spare time Jenny likes to hike, play violin, and practice martial arts.
Katie moved to CKSC in February of 2018 making a mid-year start to the service corps. She spent six months working with Community Home Supports filling various roles including doing some community organizing in the Belmont neighborhood. In August of 2018, she transitioned to a new role at a new placement: the St. Suzanne Cody Rouge Community Resource Center, or SSCRCRC for short (lol). There, Katie is assisting with getting the whole center up and running and is launching a community entrepreneurship program. In her free time, Katie has also been a huge help to Christ the King Church, putting her graduate degree in environmental engineering to work and coordinating a rain garden built to divert excess water from the city drains.
