CAC AmeriCorps’ first-ever Service Symposium, June 3rd 2021, celebrates the continued resilience and perseverance that members have shown and continue to show as they navigate their year of service. Resilience and perseverance have always played key roles in the AmeriCorps experience, but this year, they were essential to the success of our members. Many met challenges that they never imagined, but they pushed through and accomplished much despite this. Below we have highlighted some of the accomplishments of our members during their term. We want to thank each and every one of them for the big and small ways they have impacted this community for the better. We are overjoyed to continue supporting those we will see again this fall, but for those leaving our corps this summer, we hope they have gained a valuable experience and perspective that they hold for the rest of their life. Thank you all for your service.
