Cassandra Santos dedicates her time and passion to being a Greenfield Community College Student Senator, Peer Tutor and New Student Orientation Leader. She is also a volunteer for the Federal Street Elementary School "Walk to College" program and Habitat for Humanity. Cassandra has participated in two terms in the National Civilian Community Corps and looks forward to using her degree in Engineering to be able to assist with developing water systems. Cassandra hopes to make significant contributions to public problems by joining in the Peace Corps after she graduates from college.
After graduating from high school and again five years later, I decided to become an AmeriCorps NCCC member. Both times, I spent ten months working on community service projects all over the United States. As a Greenfield Community College student, I am able to be a part of and give back to my community through peer tutoring, serving as a student senator, new student orientation leader, and a math club member. Through my experiences with NCCC and as a GCC student I realized that I want to become an engineer focusing on water systems. With this education and training, I hope to join the Peace Corps and assist in communities that may not have access to clean drinking water.
