Inspiring Minds AmeriCorps Spotlight

Shelbi Hoover, is one of our AmeriCorps Member this year at Inspiring Minds.  Even though it is her first year with us, she is no stranger to AmeriCorps.  Last year Shelbi served as a City Year Member in Providence Public Schools.  While interviewing Shelbi for our “Day in the Life” video, she had an interesting and powerful quote about AmeriCorps and service: “National service is not just nice.  It is nice, but its also necessary.”  Shelbi is trying to model this ideal to her students she works with at Carl Lauro Elementary because she feels that they don’t always see adults who care about community and giving back.  Shelbi wants her students to know that she is there for them, shes not going anywhere, and that she’ll be there for them in the future.
