Volunteer Group of the month: Duke Realty


Peace Learning Center would like to recognize Duke Realty as the volunteer group of the month!! Eleven passionate employees joined us for a full day of service and we were amazed by everything they were able to do in just one day!  While here the group worked hard on building enhancements.  The PLC has never looked so great!  Kristina Hulvershorn has had the pleasure of working closely with the group and says, “Duke Realty came here eager and ready to help us.  They were so kind and seemed very  motivated by our mission.  Each person took on a task and put so much love and hard work into it.  Everything they did makes it a little easier for us to do our work to make Indianapolis a more peaceful place!”

Volunteer of the Month


Peace Learning Center would like to recognize Ron Hugar as the volunteer of the month!! Ron jumped right into volunteering with the PLC and has been willing to help us with anything!  He has been seen organizing, filing, researching and helping with program implementation!  Lisa Jones has had the pleasure of working closely with Ron and says, “I’m so glad Ron volunteered to help me get a few things in order and organized.  His help in getting my file pile caught up sure did take a lot off my plate. He’s such a nice person, I look forward to working with him again!”

Thank you Ron for everything you have done for our organization.  We are very lucky to have you on our team!

Peace Learning Center would like to recognize Ashley  Schwartzkopf, Tiffany Tibbot, and Lymari Quintana  as the volunteers of the month!! These wonderful ladies joined us as summer interns/volunteers and have been a tremendous addition to our program staff!

Clare Wildhack-Nolan and Mame Keita, youth development facilitators, worked closely with them and said, “This summer had been amazing and fun with our new interns. Ashley, Tiffany and Lymari jumped in with enthusiasm. They shared their unique personalities and styles with the PLC staff and all the summer groups. They were always positive, willing to help and we could always depend on them to step up. After just a few weeks, they were able to facilitate groups by themselves for an entire week. We appreciate that they lived the PLC values as well as their willingness to do the grunt work of ordering pizza, putting away chairs and cleaning bathrooms. They showed great commitment to peace and youth. Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts.” Thank you ladies for everything you have done for our organization.  We are very lucky to have you on our team!

Sr. Cathy Campbell


Peace Learning Center could not accomplish everything that we do without the help of our amazing volunteers.  It takes a lot of hands and hearts to educate, inspire and empower people to live peacefully.  Sister Cathy Campbell was honored as our January 2013 Volunteer of the Month:

Sr. Cathy has been extremely involved in our Focus2020 initiative and has been seen facilitating at Listening Tours, helping at the Chautauqua and workshops, and tabling for events.

Community Programs Director, John McShane, has had the pleasure of working very closely with Sr. Cathy and says, “That every time he sees her he is reminded that none of us are ever alone because she has a way of just being there, for everyone.”

Thank you Sr. Cathy for everything you have done for our organization.  We are very lucky to have you on our team!
