Spring 2018 Newsletter
In this issue, we asked students, “What is your favorite thing about the Mount Vernon Extension Center?” They had lots to say, and we are proud to celebrate their success, victories, and feedback. This issue also highlights special events and workshops at Mount Vernon this spring. To celebrate diversity, the Mount Vernon Activities Club sponsored special events for Black History Month, Women’s History Month, and Asian Pacific Islander Heritage Month. In addition, the center held a mock interview workshop and a scholarship workshop, which were both well attended. We hope you enjoy!
