We are proud of our anthropology alumni, who continue to impress us with how they apply what they learned at UNC. Here are a few updates from our graduates.
Alumni: to add your update here, contact Professor Creekmore
Kellsie graduated with a bachelor's degree in Anthropology and Minor in Art History and President’s Leadership Program. She currently works for Community Education Outreach (CEO), which she joined during her Senior year at UNC. Kellsie started as a volunteer at the Greeley CEO facility where she worked with low level readers to improve their reading skills, and GED students to prepare them for official test sections. During this time, Kellsie discovered her passion for teaching adult offenders residing in a community correctional facility.
Christie Ross joined the Peace Corps shortly after graduation. She was assigned to Burkina Faso, where she lived in an earthen house for two years. She enjoyed the experience so much that she re-upped for two more years!
After graduation Jeff worked in construction in the Greeley and Fort Collins area before moving to Missoula, Montana where he attended the University of Montana and studied forensic anthropology. While in Missoula he worked with the Montana State Crime Lab on active forensic cases as well as the Missoula County Sherrif's Department. Jeff now teaches anthropology at Northeastern Junior College in Sterling, CO. He enjoys hiking and backpacking. In the image below he is excavating a pig burial as part of a forensics exercise.
