Central State Student Joins The Peace Corps, To Serve In Togo

Central State senior Kyree Rollins has been accepted into the Peace Corps and will be departing for Togo this summer—and he “wants to be able to teach people what I learn here.” He will serve as a health extension volunteer working in community health and malaria prevention, according to a news release.

Rollins said the assignment is “the perfect fit” and will join about 25 other volunteers helping out in mainly rural areas of the West African country.

According to the school’s website, Rollins has always had an interest in public health growing up in the nation’s capital. He also served as a peer educator with Metro Teen/AIDS, a non-profit organization that promotes safe sex
