Nicole Pennell ’23MEd: “I Love the Process of Connecting”

 In Clients’ Blogs and Content

I have been writing for Plymouth State University in central New Hampshire (my younger daughter Molly’s alma mater) for several years now. My stories about students, alumni, and campus projects have appeared in the university’s alumni magazine and on its website.

Most recently, I wrote the following piece, and rather than offering it in full here on my site, I am providing the link to read it on the Plymouth State website:

Nicole Pennell ’23MEd: “I Love the Process of Connecting”

The greeting cards are handmade, and even though they are sent to strangers, they hold tender messages.

One note to a refugee says, “Thinking about you, caring about you, wishing you strength and peace!”

Another, for a veteran, reads: “Courage, bravery, love, and strength are just a few words used to describe you. Our hero.”

Every month, dozens of these cards are created by college and elementary school students, inspired and led by Nicole Pennell ’23G, who also distributes them to hospital patients, refugees, and veterans. The circulation and operations manager at St. Anselm College library, Pennell puts out card stock, markers, pencils and crayons, and students come and create.
