MILLIGAN COLLEGE, TN (September 23, 2009) – Former Americorps volunteer Ineliz Soto will speak at Milligan College’s convocation service on Tuesday, Sept. 29, at 11 a.m. in Seeger Memorial Chapel. She also will speak later that evening at a Diversity Forum at 6 p.m. in the Fireside Lounge in the McMahan Student Center.
Ineliz is a graduate of the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, Wash., her hometown. As a student, she spent two years in the inner city of Tacoma as an Americorps volunteer. While her original intent was to pay her college tuition through this process, she soon discovered her God-given ability to help students develop spiritually and academically through tutoring, mentoring and encouraging them to pursue their dreams no matter the cost.
Soto currently works as an admissions counselor at Seattle Pacific University where she continues to encourage students to get involved in their communities and pursue their dreams.
“Never let the fear of college costs keep you away from your dreams; there is always a way to make it possible!” said Soto. “Students should take advantage of their time in college and get involved in a variety of ways — ethnically, socioeconomically and spiritually — to help in future vocations and in expanding worldviews.”
