Check Out the Shepherd Bloggers

— by on June 19th, 2009

The Shepherd Alliance, a program developed by Washington and Lee as part of the Shepherd Program for the Interdisciplinary Study of Poverty and Human Capability, involves students, faculty, and staff from four Berea, Morehouse and Spelman collegs with W&L undergrad and law students for the eight-week, full-time summer internships with non-profit agencies across the eastern United States. This summer the participants, including 39 from W&L, are writing about their varied experiences on the Shepherd Alliance Internship Blog. You can read Emily Leary’s observations from her internship with Covenant House or Danielle Ausems’ reports from her internship at Frontier Nursing Services in Wendover, Ky. or Graham Sheridan’s dispatches from Camp Interactive in New York City. It’s a really varied group of placements, and the students will be sharing their experiences throughout the summer.
