Magis alumna joins Peace Corps in Guatemala

Emma Cannon ’14, a Spanish and International Studies double major with a focus on Latin American Studies, is a Peace Corps volunteer in Guatemala. As a volunteer, she works in support of the Healthy Schools Project, which strives to improves basic health and hygiene in primary school students in Guatemala. Her decision to join the Corps developed while she was at Fairfield and in part because of her involvement with the Magis Scholarship program. Magis means “more” and is closely tied to Fairfield’s Jesuit mission and identity. Cannon said that that influence encouraged her to make the most out of her four years at Fairfield and helped her in her decision to join the Peace Corps.
