Janelle Holte ’14 has been accepted into the Midwest Peace Corps, according to the Aitkin Age.
Through volunteering, Holte will work to identify resources and agriculture projects that can be developed and implemented to generate income. She will also facilitate training in farm management and work with schools to enhance and expand environmental education.
Holte, who holds a bachelor’s degree in business marketing and communications, will join 202 Minnesota residents currently serving in the Peace Corps. She will serve in Jamaica.
“As I traveled more, studied abroad in college and volunteered, I realized that I thrive off of new experiences, meeting new people, and giving back to others any way I am able to,” Holte said in an interview.
