 “I feel such a connectedness working within the community of Sewanee and surrounding areas through the VISTA program. Helping others see their own strengths, to sharing my creative side when called upon, day in and day out, I feel a true sense of fulfillment and contentment. The Mountain is rich in culture and community; I feel lucky to be a part of it!”
