MPA Alumni Return 2 Evergreen

 Last weekend, Return 2 Evergreen celebrated 50 years of Evergreen's founding. The weekend was filled with opportunities for alumni, faculty, and current students to connect and share their experiences at Evergreen and post-graduation projects. MPA alumni and faculty appeared on several panels throughout the weekend. 

Amy Gould (MPA faculty), Kimberly Mays (MPA 2010), and Korbett Mosesly (MPA 2011) sat on the panel for “Convicts & Caring: Changing Paths and What Public Servants Need to Know.” The panel discussed the IF Project, a documentary following the lives of prisoners at Washington Corrections Center for Women and Seattle police officer Kim Bogucki.

In addition, Jessica Bateman (MPA 2012), Korbett Mosesly (MPA 2011), Dorian Waller (MPA 2009), and current MPA 2018 candidate Rhianna Hruska sat on the panel, “Engaging in Local Politics: An Interactive Community Conservation.” They discussed running for local office, careers in politics, and managing political campaigns.

Diana Arens (MPA 2015) moderated a panel about Evergreen's KAOS Radio station. The panel discussed the history of KAOS and the ways the station has empowered the community. 

We are pleased to have MPA alumni that are involved in their communities and willing to return to Evergreen to share their stories and inspire others.
