August 9, 2002 - CHICAGO - Danielle Bash of Auburn has joined the Peace Corps as a small business advisor in Morocco. She will leave the United States Sunday for training.

As a small business advisor, Bash will work with the artisan community in raising living standards by making informed economic choices. Previously, she was a magnet quality engineer at Magnequench International in Anderson.

The small business program is designed to improve artisans' understanding of business dynamics through training, information sharing and resource identification. The Peace Corps seeks to increase business particitipation of women and girls, an aspect in which Bash is particularly interested.

Bash graduated from Tri-State University in Angola in 1998 with a bachelor's degree in business management. She is the daughter of David and Karen Bash of Auburn.

In a press release, Bash said she was motivated to join the Peace Corps by a television commercial she saw when she was in high school and by her love of travel. She also enjoys volunteer work and saw the Peace Corps as a way to combine service with her love of travel. Bash visited France at the age of 20 in her first overseas trip.

The Peace Corps currently has more than 8,000 volunteers serving in 77 countries, working on projects to bring clean water to communities, teach children, help start new small businesses, and stop the spread of AIDS. More than 155,000 Americans have joined the Peace Corps in 134 nations since President John F. Kennedy founded it on March 1, 1961.
