Letters from the Lunchroom is a podcast that shows you a new side of Communities In Schools of Mid-America, a non-profit which provides support services for at-risk students. As someone who has worked with non-profits for the past 10 years, Victoria Partridge knows that people who engage with non-profits have a story to tell, and she wants to hear that story. From students to staff members, and alumni to volunteers, Victoria connects with people of all backgrounds to discover the journey they took which brought them to Communities In Schools. Join us in the lunchroom to hear these stories, which are always touching, occasionally heart-breaking, and often surprising.
In this episode, we talk with Chasity Hurd, a CIS of Mid-America Site Coordinator at Shawnee Mission Northwest High School in Mission, Kansas. Chasity's story travels through multiple states, and begins with her working with AmeriCorps before connecting with CIS of Mid-America. Through her experiences, she has learned the importance of not judging people by their first impression, as well as taking a step back to determine what type of imprint YOU want to make on this world.
