Rachael Borné ’13: Poughkeepsie Field Work Pride
Community activism is in Rachael Borné’s blood. Her great-grandmother, Adolphine Fletcher Terry, Vassar Class of 1902, fought segregation in Little Rock, Arkansas. For Borné, Poughkeepsie and the opportunity to do field work in its “vibrant community” was a huge part of her attraction to Vassar. Last year, she broadened her scope to a women’s prison in Peru and will be traveling to Argentina on a Fulbright later this year.
