Goals: The relationship between WAC and Chestertown is so crucial for our success. The community of Chestertown supports us in immense ways. I plan on making connections within the community as early as I can. Additionally, working alongside the Chestertown community I would like to assist in Chestertown’s initiative as a “Tree City, USA” in reaching their goal on the number of trees planted. Through the “hands-on” approach I believe that the engagement between Chestertown and Washington college will prosper.
