Introducing College Intern Martha Thomas

Martha ThomasWe would like to introduce you to our college intern at the Perry County Community Foundation! This position is made possible through the Lilly Endowment, and below is a little bit about Martha, in her own words. Welcome, Martha!

“My name is Martha Thomas, and I am a Lead Teacher and Extended Care Coordinator at Stepping Stones Preschool, and also a Teacher’s assistant at Perry Central Community School. On Monday, July 13, I began my position as summer intern for the Perry County Community Foundation, thanks to the Lilly Endowment Foundation. I have an Associate’s Degree in Accounting and have recently returned to college as a non-traditional student to work toward a degree in Early Childhood Education. I know, two totally different fields, but I have found Early Childhood to be my passion. My project at the Foundation is to follow up on how grants have been utilized and write stories about the impact they have had in the community.”
