Peace Corps position can add a little excitement to your life, David Kolb tells MLive and Muskegon Chronicle readers | MLive.com: “West Michigan residents have been active in the Peace Corps. About 450 residents in our area have been Peace Corps volutneers, a rate sightly higher than the national average.
David Kolb talked this week about one Muskegon man’s recent experience that ended up being a little more exciting than he had expected in his column, ‘Muskegon man’s Peace Corps mission was more exciting than he expected.’ “

Obama picks nominee for Peace Corps top job: “WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama has nominated the deputy director of the Peace Corps to be the agency’s director and chosen a lawyer and presidential campaign fundraiser as the nominee for ambassador to the Netherlands.
The White House on Thursday announced the nomination of Carolyn Hessler Radelet to the top Peace Corps post. She was a Peace Corps volunteer in Western Samoa in the early 1980s and held various positions with a public health management firm, John Snow Inc., before becoming the agency’s deputy director in 2010.”
