Lauren Creany, Special Gifts Officer, Development Office

Creany volunteers with Oregon Volunteers’ AmeriCorps Program, as a peer reviewer for grants for non-profits and schools applying to host AmeriCorps programs in order to address issues related to education, healthy futures, clean energy/environment, veterans, and economic opportunity. This work is important to Creany because she believes that AmeriCorps service is one of the best ways to handle intractable problems in our communities. “A strong AmeriCorps program is a boon both for the AmeriCorps members involved in the service as well as the communities they serve,’ Creany says. Creany also volunteers to coordinate the Oregon alumni interview program for the private highschool she attended.  Creany says, “Interviewing students for Choate has been unexpectedly rewarding this year because I’ve had the opportunity to meet some really interesting and talented young people.”
