New Grad Heads to Uganda

Mackenzie Brown graduated from Washington and Lee in June with a major in environmental studies and a minor in poverty studies. She headed back to her home town of Kingwood, W.Va., but only for a couple of months while she prepared for her big adventure — a year running an after school program at St. Kizito Primary School in Kampala, Uganda. In a story for a local West Virginia television station, WVNS-TV, Mackenzie explained that this will be her first trip to Africa. She is participating in a program called Better Understanding of Life in Africa or BULA. Mackenzie has begun her blog, so you can follow her journey there. And you can view the TV news story about her trip here. Good luck, Mackenzie.
