Meet the Fellows!
—Pickering Grad '09
Originally from Eudora, Arkansas, Courtney has long been devoted to education, service, and cross-cultural interaction. While earning a degree in Education from Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia, he served in AmeriCorps and was a Bonner Scholar. These programs provided him with opportunities to serve locally and abroad. For example, he was able to participate in a Habitat for Humanity project in Durban, South Africa. International experience gained in college later led to entry into the Peace Corps, where he served as an English Teacher Trainer in Mozambique. Along with learning Portuguese, he helped educate Mozambicans about cultural diversity in the U.S. and developed a curriculum for teaching English in elementary school.
