Rocky Mountain Youth Corps’ Linda Santana to be Recognized in Washington D.C. as Corpsmember of the Year

Rocky Mountain Youth Corps is honored to announce that one of its very own Corpsmembers has been selected to represent over 27,000 AmeriCorps volunteers as The Corps Network’s Corpsmember of the Year. Linda Santana, along with six other outstanding AmeriCorps members across the country, will be recognized at The Corps Network’s 2014 National Conference in Washington D.C. In addition to presenting her story to conference attendees, Linda will meet with Senators Udall and Heinrich to discuss the importance of national and community service in New Mexico. Carl Colonius, RMYC’s Co-Founder and Executive Director, is “extremely proud of Linda and all that she has accomplished in her season with RMYC”. Linda has served as an exemplary corpsmember at Rocky Mountain Youth Corps since March 2013. She is a positive role model for her peers and a strong leader every day. Linda hopes to continue to make a difference in her community by pursuing a Master’s Degree in Outdoor Education.

“Linda’s achievement is a testament to RMYC’s commitment to community service and our dedication to positive youth development”, said Colonius.

Each year The Corps Network honors Service and Conservation Corpsmembers whose accomplishments and personal stories exemplify the positive role that Corps serve for individuals and communities nationwide. They help serve as Corps Ambassadors, or spokespeople for the Corps Movement.
