Moreau is pleased to announce the selection of three alumni as part of the 2018-2019 Moreau Fellowship Program. Colin de Guzman, Corinna Sanding, and Michael Pacheco are this year's Moreau fellows.
"We were particularly impressed with their dedication to and passion for Holy Cross education; for mentoring and supporting young people as they learn and grow; and for being willing to spend a year of service at their alma mater," President Terry Lee said in a letter to this year's fellows.
The program, now in its second year, is designed for Moreau Catholic alumni who are recent college graduates and are discerning a career in education. The alumni selected for the program have demonstrated a commitment to service and community life, will work as full-time employees during the school year, and at times will be paired with a master teacher to assist with specific classes.
De Guzman is a recent graduate of St. Edward's University in Austin, Texas, where he earned a B.S. degree in behavioral neuroscience.
Throughout his undergraduate career, he was involved in campus ministry, student orientation, and student activities. Along with his leadership and service, he also assisted with various clinical studies as a research assistant for the behavioral neuroscience lab.
He will be working with campus ministry and student activities, utilizing the skills he has honed in student leadership development, diversity and inclusion, and spirituality.
Sanding is a recent graduate of Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, where she earned a business administration degree with a concentration in marketing and minors in statistics, ethnic studies, and dance.
At Cal Poly, she was involved in the university's professional dance company, Orchesis, as well as the Filipino Club, Pilipino Cultural Exchange. Sanding will support the Learning Center program and dance program.
Pacheco is a 2013 graduate of Moreau and a 2018 graduate of St. Edward's University in Austin, Texas, where he earned a B.A in history with a minor in secondary education. While at St. Edward's, Pacheco led various leadership development programs and was a resident assistant for two years.
Pacheco will support both the Saint Andre Personalized Learning Program in Theology and the Admissions program.
The three former Moreau students begin their fellowships in August.
