Best Wishes to Kaitlin Schaefer

Jocelyn Moellering, Individual Development VP, 231-383-5623

We have officially fulfilled one of our goals in our chapter plan to “donate one member to the Peace Corps.” On April 26, RAJC Community Director Kaitlin Schaefer flew off to the nation of Georgia to participate in a 27-month program with the Peace Corps. One of her many activities will be teaching English to the native Georgians, who speak their own language with an entirely different alphabet. She plans to keep us up to date on her many adventures there and you can read about them on her blog at kjschaefer.wordpress.com.

Kaitlin was a vital board member who always gave her time, effort, and great attitude to many projects since joining our chapter last May. She worked with Community VP Julia Webber on a variety of projects and headed up the monthly community donations at GMMs. She inspired her fellow chapter members with her positive attitude, sense of humor, and desire to help her community. On a more personal note, she was a wonderful babysitter to our son, Owen and it will be difficult both for us and for Owen to replace her. While Kaitlin will be missed, we know that she will be engaging in activities that will forever change her life and will even change our world.
