If you are a recent college graduate yet unemployed, what do you do with your spare time? Why, volunteer for a major project with your nearest jurisdictional agency, of course. Willamette University students Kirsten Straus, sporting her new Classical studies degree, and friend Sean Edging, with his environmental studies degree, did just that--and then won an award for their efforts!
Wherever they find themselves in the future, Kirsten and Sean will prove an asset to their employers. Their dedication and enthusiasm has certainly been of benefit to the City of Salem, and will also serve them well in the years to come.
