Congrats, Peace Corps

THE EDITOR, Sir:

I wish to congratulate the Peace Corps on its 50th anniversary.

I am one of the many Jamaicans who have benefited tremendously from the Peace Corps' services. In the 1990s, a Peace Corps volunteer, Dr Ardelle Hubbert, a psychologist, was placed in St Ann and was instrumental in training me, and another special educator in the area, in child and school psychology.

Dr Hubbert remained as a mentor and friend while I completed doctoral studies in psychology. We are still in touch.

Thank you, Peace Corps, for the opportunities and training I received then. I look forward to working with the Peace Corps whenever the opportunity arises.

I am, etc.,

ORLEAN BROWN EARLE (PhD)
