“Reagan was an incredible AmeriCorps member!  She was excited to serve the community and help those in need move forward.  Her work at Humanities Foundation made a difference in so many lives!  Her leadership skills on the team and in the community were such an example to so many.  We were so excited and proud when she moved from her AmeriCorps service term directly to Humanities Foundation full time!  What an honor it is to partner with her, serve with her and learn from her on a daily basis!  Thank you, Reagan, for touching so many lives!”
