Huffington Post publishes piece by SCI's first AmeriCorps member

"Reflections on 9/11: Faced with Adversity, I Will Persevere", by Roger Wong, Huffington Post (September 11, 2014)

On the eve of the 20th Anniversary of AmeriCorps, the Huffington Post has published a piece by SCI AmeriCorps alum Roger Wong. The piece, which documents his call to service after 9/11, is a wonderful reminder of the ways that we can reach out in times of crisis. It is also proof that AmeriCorps can be the gateway to a life of service. Congrats, Roger!
