My name is Kara Haymaker, I am twenty years old and I am a junior at Glenville State College, majoring in behavioral science. When I graduate, I plan to get a master's degree in guidance counseling and a doctorate's degree in grief therapy.

This year I have taken a position as the VISTA (volunteers in service to America). In 1965, VISTA was developed by the president, with a mission to eliminate poverty in the United States.

VISTAs are placed in communities through Americorps. Once we are placed, we become a part of the community by pledging a year of service to them and also to our nation.

In my position, I will be working out of the WVU Extension Office in Calhoun County designing and implementing a family literacy program.

I have been in 4-H for as long as I can remember. This program encourages community service and develops community leaders. Through my training in 4-H I have had many opportunities to gain leadership and other skills that will help me with this position.

This position will give me an opportunity to give back to my community, a community I have been a part of all of my life.
