Country of Service: Liberia
Training Group: Rural Development
Cities you served in: Zorzor
Arrival Year: 1970
Departure Year: 1971
Built schools, market shelters, clinics and farm-to-market roads
Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
Went back to school for a MA in communications. Opened my own little ad agency and have been self employed since 1982. Moved to rural Missouri, got married for 30 years now and raised two children, ages 16 and 23. Life is good.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
I was medical evacuated from Liberia after a truck accident. Ended up loosing a finger, but Peace Corps Liberia remains the formative experience of my life. For those Zorzor RPCV from our era, James Kpedeh escaped Liberia 1995 and is now in the US. He remains a member of our family and we see and talk to him often. I went back as an election monitor in 1997 and again on business in 1999. Zorzor was a mess, but today it is easier to call Zorzor on a cell phone than from Monrovia! Ran into Milton Clinton. He is still alive and well, but many others we all knew are were killed in the fighting.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Bob D., Mary Fran H., Ann Mc., Steve G., Sarah from Zorzor Jim Stevenson and many more. You all know who you are, and I'd love to hear from you.
