Public Service Spotlight: Emilee Kiesel

This week’s Spotlight shines down on Emilee Kiesel, a fourth year Biology major. Emilee was chosen for the depths that she’s driven in two areas of community service: therapeutic activities and prevention of sexual abuse.

As a volunteer in Madison’s House Therapeutic Adventures program, Emilee has been skiing these past few years with kids who are coping with various disabilities. This year she will serve as the program director overseeing all adaptive activities including kayaking and fishing.

She is also currently interning at the women’s center working with sexual and domestic violence services. Among many things, her responsibilities there include planning Domestic Violence Awareness Month this October. In addition, this year she will also be Chair of Take Back the Night which is a series of events leading up to a march which all bring awareness to sexual violence.
