Leave a comment

Alice Carter 2Meet Alice Carter.  She is 88 years old.  Until a couple of years ago, Alice Carter was was tutoring inner-city kids and helping with church dinners. You might think that she would choose to do less as she aged.

But she wanted something different than the standard slow paced life of many in their their senior years. So  in 2015 Carter began serving as a volunteer for the Peace Corps in Morocco.  She is their oldest working volunteer. 

Alice say that she has had an interest in the Peace Corps since 1960 when then-President Kennedy urged young Americans to get involved in peace and progress around the world.  She responded 50 years later. 

 Her two year term ends this year.
