After hearing from past AmeriCorps all the way back to 2001, it’s easy to tell that all have very fond memories of their time at PTMSC. Whether it’s cleaning the intake screens under the Marine Exhibit, feeding our marine animals, or teaching school children about the wonders of the ocean. Many have moved on to earn Masters Degrees, have families, and get great jobs.
In 2010, our AmeriCorps decided they weren’t quite ready to move on yet and all four of them opted to stay for another year in 2011. We fondly dubbed them “the Sanderlings.”
Our bright young AmeriCorps can now be found at such places as NOAA, Olympic National Park, Center for Alaska Coastal Studies, and Woodland Park Zoo. Past PTMSC AmeriCorps all have one thing in common: they loved their time with the PTMSC “family” and wouldn’t trade their experience here for anything.
