Congratulations Civic Engagement Graduates!
Civic Engagement would like to proudly recognize our recently graduated students from Spring 2015. We predict bright futures for each of them and wish them the best of luck post-graduation. Their laughs, hard-work, dedication and smiles will be missed but certainly not forgotten.
Sigi Cayel was a political science major who served as Executive Director of Panther Breakaway during her time with us. In this role, Sigi recruited participants and site leaders and also planned the club’s event calendar and training sessions. During her time at the office, Sigi most enjoyed the relationships formed with the students and staff who also work in the office. After graduation, Sigi hopes to be able to incorporate her passions of traveling and event planning into a career.
Ashley Maclin was a graduate student with our office, working toward her master’s degree in the information systems audit and control. Ashley spent the majority of her time in the office conducting assessments and leading service projects with a number of our community partners. While at Civic Engagement, Ashley enjoyed the chance to give back to those that are underserved in the community. After graduation, Ashley will be working as a Risk Assurance Associate at PwC in Atlanta while continuing to work towards her CPA and CISA licenses.
Mia McDonald was an undergraduate English literature major and Outreach Coordinator for Civic Engagement. As Outreach Coordinator, Mia worked to find new and creative ways to promote office events while encouraging others in the community to get more involved. Mia enjoyed being able to participate in the service projects and being able to learn more about the community. After graduation, Mia wishes to travel and continue serving the community.
Toni McCoy was a graduate student studying to obtain her master’s degree in social work. While at Civic Engagement, Toni organized Trick or Treat Fest, a trick or treating program for inner-city children, and served as a staff leader on the New Orleans Urban Education Panther Breakaway trip. Toni’s favorite parts of the office were the relationships she formed with the staff and the opportunities she had to give back. Toni hopes to travel some and continue gaining real-world experiences.
Bianca Phillips was also a graduate student who graduated with her master’s in social work. Bianca worked with the Interfaith program and led many service projects while working at Civic Engagement. Bianca enjoyed being able to make connections with others in the nonprofit sector during her time here.
