November 2016: Yunyi Cho

Yunyi Cho is attending NMU for a semester abroad from South Korea.  During her short time on campus and in Marquette, Yunyi has spent a significant amount of her time volunteering.

Two notable contributions include her participation in the Forest Roberts Theater Halloween Haunted House and Make A Difference Day. When the Volunteer Center was contacted with a request for yard raking services following the completion of Make A Difference Day, Yunyi was the only person who responded willing to help. Yunyi persevered through heavy rain and never stopped raking until the job was complete! The family she helped out was beyond thankful for her services.

Thank you for your service, Yungyi!  Congratulations and keep up the great work!
