What Happened Last Week
Get to Know your AmeriCorps!
My name is Hannah Ferguson; I studied engineering at the University of Alaska, where I enjoyed commercial fishing in the summers, xc skiing and snowshoeing in the winter, and hiking/backpacking all year. Through Engineers without Borders in my hometown of Flint, Michigan, I lead a joint project with Habitat for Humanity to design and disperse sink attachments for filtration systems to help the Flint community gain access to clean water, which inspired me to do more work with Habitat through Americorps. After completing my first AmeriCorps term in Seattle, Washington as a construction crew leader, I decided to do a second year with the Central Berkshire Habitat. I am excited to be serving here as a Construction Systems Development VISTA.
