Kennedy Kirtland – AmeriCorps VISTA
In September 2020, we welcomed Kennedy Kirtland for a year of service as our AmeriCorps VISTA. Kennedy has previously held roles at the Boys & Girls Club, Wellesley College, and her alma mater Georgia Southern. She sought a position with Horizons at CDS to continue exploring her passions: education, community-based programming, and service. Kennedy has been integral in the launch of our school year tutoring program, and she continues to help us deepen our connections with our families and spread the word about Horizons to more people in the Asheville community and beyond.
