Early last June we posted a story about Andy Penfield, ’11 (pictured above with his dad and mother, David and Becky, at the beginning of senior year), titled, “Following His Passion and Dreams.” He was one week from departure for Africa where he would spend 27 months as a Peace Corps volunteer. Yesterday, we decided to catch up on Andy’s life so we went to his blog. Here is what we learned. Upon graduation from Keene State University with a double major in Mathematics and Physics, Andy states: “I had no clue what I wanted to do with my life. I decided that I would do Peace Corps until I figured out what I want to do.” Assigned to the country of Liberia, Andy departed for Africa in early June to begin three months of in-country Pre-Service Training (PST) with the Peace Corps. After successfully completing the PST, he was sworn in an official Peace Corps volunteer. Andy was then transported to his site in Bomi County in the northwest corner of the country towards the border with Sierra Leone. Here, Andy has settled in for the next two years, living and working with the Gola, who are skilled farmers, and teaching mathematics and physics to their children who are ninth, tenth, and eleventh graders.
