On Nov. 12, Megan Lister of Brandenburg, was inducted into the National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC), an AmeriCorps program.

Lister arrived at NCCC’s Southwest Region Campus in Denver and began training on Oct. 13, for 10 months of full-time service with AmeriCorps NCCC.

As a Corps member, Lister will be responsible for completing a series of six- to eight-week-long service projects as part of a 10- to 12-person team. Her first service project will end on Dec. 17, at which time her team will break for the winter holidays and begin a new project in a new location in January.

Before joining the NCCC, Lister graduated from North Hardin High School in May 2006. Lister said, “I chose to join AmeriCorps NCCC because I wanted to give back in a big way.”

Lister is the daughter of Mary Lister.
