Arleigh serves Saint Anthony Park Community Council this summer as a Community Engagement Intern. She is a rising junior student currently pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Studies and Sociology/Anthropology at St. Olaf College. Having previously interned with Environment Minnesota, she aims to pursue issues of sustainable justice within the community. Having grown up in a Chicago neighborhood famous for its diversity, but failing in its ability to facilitate community collaboration, she yearns to engage face-to-face with Saint Anthony Park community members regarding the Ten Year Plan. Arleigh is extremely grateful to be working with the strong team at SAPCC and anticipates extreme growth from this experience.
