Alumnus Serves in Peace Corps

Stephen Andrew Wood, BA '06, was ready for a "change of pace" after living in Washington for five years, so he joined the Peace Corps. From 2007 to 2009, the philosophy major lived in West Africa and was employed as an agriculture extension agent, working with farmers, gardeners and tree orchard owners to implement techniques to improve soil fertility and crop yield.
