Caitlyn Allen, as an intern for the South Lansing Community Development Association. Spotlight: Caitlyn Allen, ’15

She was responsible for the organization's social media and was shortly promoted to writing their weekly newsletter. She also operated the children's tent at weekly farmers markets. In her free time, Caitlyn would help grow vegetables in the group's hoop house. This experience inspired Caitlyn to continue a career of service with Americorps.
