Alumni Spotlight: Carrie Waldron ’09

December, 2009

Carrie Waldron, '09

Carrie Waldron is a young woman with a mature world view and a long list of talents. Her undergraduate experience began in Jordan, where she studied anthropology. “I couldn’t get enough of the Middle East—the food, the culture, the atmosphere, and the people all became dear to me,” says Waldron. “One thing I’d like to point out is how safe the country is. Everyone was scared for me while I was there, but honestly, I felt safer in Amman than [I’ve felt] in any American city.” Read More

Preserving a Piece of History

The Kimball House story shows that big things can come from small communities.

At the ripe old age of 6, Sara Dunkerton was already a teacher. “I played school with anyone who was willing to participate,” she says with a laugh. “I’ve always known what I wanted to be.”

To fulfill that dream, Dunkerton pursued a BS in childhood studies and an MEd in math education, earning both degrees at Plymouth State. “I chose Plymouth State for my undergraduate work because it was close to home, had small classes, and had the best reputation for its education program,” she says. “I went back to Plymouth State for my graduate degree because Professor Buteau was wonderful and Professors Mosedale and Fralick were so supportive, and also because my whole experience as an undergrad was so wonderful. I met my closest friends at Plymouth. It had a homey feel and sense of community, and it was small enough that you knew everyone.”

After receiving her BS, Dunkerton set out to find creative ways to help people fulfill their potential. Read More
