Kehoe Meets with Honors Program Members
Ashley Kehoe, director, Civic Engagement and Student Leadership Programs at Alfred State College, met with Honors Program members Oct. 18 to explain the What’s Your Passion? campaign. Kehoe encouraged students to make use of the college’s Social Change Leadership Series as a way to explore and make the most of the many options open to them in their ‘odyssey’ years. The recession and limited employment opportunities can sometimes ‘free’ a college student or recent graduate to try jobs and even careers not previously considered. Alternative spring breaks, internships, studying abroad, and other forms of experiential learning can change a student’s focus and inspire a whole new career interest, according to Kehoe.
