Ashley Muraczewski, Saint Anselm College, NH

Saint Anselm College’s Ashley Muraczewski nurtured the Meelia Center’s Humanities After-School: Exploring a World of Human Greatness. Supported by the NH Humanities Council vision of community education and engagement with refugees, Ashley Muraczewski helped bring together 35 high school refugees and Saint Anselm students to collaboratively research and present on the cultures that send refugees to Manchester. Ashley helped create a climate where all participants valued each other and embraced the hard work involved in research, presentation, preparation and delivery. The Humanities After-School Program allowed Ashley’s abilities to rise to the surface where they remain available for great things she has yet to accomplish.
