Save the date: Wednesday, September 14, 2022 8:00 PM ET / 5:00 PM PT
Marian Haley Beil was born and raised in Western Pennsylvania, where she received a BA in math from a small Catholic girls college. She went to the University of Maryland for one year to study math, and it was there, in early 1962, that she had the great idea… to volunteer for the Peace Corps.

This is an opportunity to learn more about our history from one who helped create it. Please join us for this occasion.
We will send out the Zoom link the day before the event.
