Community Connector: Whitney Gherman Recognized by Outreach and Engagement

The Ohio State Office of Outreach and Engagement recently recognized Whitney Gherman, FCS educator in Marion County, as a Community Connector. Recently, Whitney mobilized activists, community residents, artists, and community-accountable scholars to participate in collaborative and emergent dreaming, writing, and drafting of a new program, Marion Dreamkeepers. The program and research study elevated youth of color as leaders for racial justice and exemplified community responsive, collaborative, creative work in Extension.
