Alumni Stephanie Jackson works for the Peace Corps in Russia

Stephanie Jackson ’12, from her small town roots in Tully, New York, has nurtured a blossoming global career in education. As a teacher-trainer volunteer with the Peace Corps in the Kyrgyz Republic, Russia, located on the northwestern border of China, she is teaching English and educating young women on gender equality. 

Years before her journey to the Kyrgyz Republic, Stephanie always knew she wanted to be a teacher and toured several colleges as part of her search for the right place to pursue that aspiration. Once she saw Elmira College from her family vehicle, she immediately knew the purple-and-gold campus was the place for her.
