Rebekah is serving as the AmeriCorps Student Resource Center Coordinator Representative on the Ohio University Zanesville (OUZ) campus. She is currently a junior at OUZ as a Social Work major. She’s not sure yet which realm she will be gearing towards in the social work field, but she does know that she would like to help people in their needs so they can thrive in this life we have been given. Upon graduation, she will be attaining a BSW, and plans to further her education to receive a MSW in the future. In her position as the OUZ Student Resource Center Coordinator, Rebekah will be re-vamping our food pantry on campus as “Cat’s Cupboard,” which will be partnering with the career closet. She will also be learning more about what resources her campus needs to better serve its students (created an entrance needs exam through Qualtrics). Ever since she was a little girl, she has always had a passion for people, that has grown as she has aged. No matter where a person may come from, what they look like, what they have done, whatever their deemed social status is, it is Rebekah’s utmost burden to somehow help them see their value. She believes that whomever you are, you are important, you are valuable, and you are loved. In being a part of AmeriCorps, she is excited to have the opportunity to serve her various classmates and connect them with resources to aide in their success as university students. Aside from serving with AmeriCorps, Rebekah is also a student worker on campus and has led tours for incoming students during welcome events, connected with students during Welcome Week, worked in the library designing posters/displays for books and other activities, currently helps in the Student Success Center with testing, will be helping the accessibility provider with students needing a test scribe, and has assisted the accountant, dean and assistant dean, and has run OULN (virtual class network) classes.
