McCarthy Center Family,
This past year during the COVID-19 pandemic, we continued to uplift the community we serve. We increased our impact with the youth, created new partnerships, and collaborated with USF departments across campus to deliver exceptional programing. We enhanced and amplified our outstanding preexisting programs, and we also launched a new program, Equity Interns.
Moving into 2022, I look forward to embracing the new normal and continuing to be flexible with whatever comes our way. It brings me much joy knowing that I am a part of an all-star team. I still continue to pinch myself each day, and I am so thankful for all that my team has done and continues to do for the Center. I feel so fortunate to lead the Center, and it’s an absolute honor to work alongside my USF family.
