Spoolstra, '11, Makes Sacrifice to Serve in the Peace Corps

Christin Spoolstra, '11, majored in English and political science, completed a concentration in the Gerald R. Ford Institute for Leadership in Public Policy and Service and played goalkeeper for the women's lacrosse team.

Christin Spoolstra, a member of the Ford Institute from the class of 2011, is currently in her first year of service in the Svay Rieng province in Cambodia. The area in which she is stationed, near the Vietnamese border, is one of the poorest provinces in the country. It is there that Spoolstra teaches high school-level classes to local students for 17 hours a week and also tutors some of the Cambodian teachers in conversational English three days per week.
