AmeriCorps Members Allie Henson & Shannon Henke Take Part in Winnemucca MLK Day Community Cultural Fair
Martin Luther King Day presents an excellent opportunity to uphold the AmeriCorps mission of strengthening communities through public service. The Nevada Outdoor School (a BLM and AmeriCorps partner) organized a MLK Day Community Cultural Fair, aimed at engaging youth and adults in a celebration of Winnemucca’s diverse local culture.
I’m not from around here. You might not guess it from my Taft-esque moustache and brass Wild Turkey belt buckle, but if you ask me, sure, I’ll admit it: I’m from California. San Francisco even. I’m no gold miner, buckaroo or anything close to a cowboy poet. But I am a fan of interesting slices of American culture and a pretty adaptable dude. Maybe that’s why I finished college, packed up and moved to Elko, Nevada for an AmeriCorps internship with the Western Folklife Center.
