Silver Lake College welcomes Vanessa Nenahlo as its new school and community outreach coordinator in the School of Education.
She will be directing the Backpack Book Club and Look Ahead Lakers programs, including the summer Camp Explore. She also will be in charge of campus visit days for area fifth- and eighth-grade students.
Nenahlo is a 2013 alumna of Silver Lake College, graduating with a major in elementary education and a minor in mathematics.
Originally from Valders, she stayed close to home for her education and returned to the Valders Area School District for her student teaching placements.
From there, she ventured into the early childhood field and worked at Precious Memories Daycare and Preschool in Whitelaw as a school-age/preschool teacher.
During her years as a student at Silver Lake College, Nenahlo worked in the office of admissions where she enjoyed interacting with prospective students and showing them the wonderful opportunities Silver Lake College has to offer.
After graduation, she was active in the Silver Lake College alumni board of directors.
