I feel so prepared for this position because of everything WMS taught me. My Vista training included causes of poverty and solutions, and I sat there feeling like I was back in Gender, Race, and Class. I just wanted to start quoting Peggy McIntosh. Vista in general is a good follow-up to the WMS Program since its aim is eliminating poverty and we study so much about it. Thanks so much for everything, Dr. LeSavoy!Kelsey Mahoney
