WILMINGTON9 — The Clinton Community Fellows will present their work over the past 10 weeks at the August Economic Network Alliance meeting at 8 a.m. August 4 at the Hampton Inn & Suites Wilmington.

This year’s Fellows are Cierra Bolender, Jenna Norman, Jordan Snarr, and Lily Wiliford. They have been working with a diverse set of projects including homelessness and public health, assessing historic properties throughout the county, surveying of local boards, and analyzing workforce trends.

Dr. Michael Snarr of Wilmington College has also assisted the Fellows this summer.

Clinton Community Fellows was founded by Energize Clinton County (ECC), the Wilmington-Clinton County Chamber of Commerce and the Clinton County Regional Planning Commission (CCRPC) to engage young professionals and open professional opportunities locally.

This summer the Wilmington News Journal also produced four interview articles with past Fellows.

This marks the 12th year for the award-winning young professional development program which has now engaged 45 Fellows and assisted over 100 businesses and organizations over the dozen years.

The Fellows receive a stipend for their work which is funded from donations to ECC and support from the CCRPC, the Clinton Community Foundation, Clinton-Massie Business Scholarship Program, and HealthFirst.

Downtown office space for the Fellows is generously provided at no cost by the Wilmington Friends Meeting.
