Date: September 20, 2017

Please Welcome New TCC Staff & 2017-2018 Interns!

Fall is fast upon us and as the season begins to change, so does our staff. We are so excited to welcome Taryn Fuchs, our new Communications Specialist and Social Norming Coordinator, and Collin Heng-Patton, our new Bilingual Enrollment Coordinator.

We also have a brand new batch of interns to welcome to our team. Working on various projects throughout the school year, they are integral to our day-to-day functions and helpful in our effort to the expand the programming we offer at The Conflict Center. We are so lucky and grateful to have them.

When she can find the time, Taryn loves salsa dancing and exploring the depths of caves.
