Icess Booker - GREX Mentor/Volunteer Coordinator

Icess Booker is the new Great Expectations at PVCC Mentor/Volunteer Coordinator. She is also part of the AmeriCorps VISTA program and will be part of the Great Expectations at PVCC program through mid-August 2018, when she completes her AmeriCorps VISTA term. Icess received a bachelor’s degree in Mass Communications with two minors in Marketing and Business Administration from the University of North Carolina at Pembroke. Icess feels the most rewarding part of her new position is being able to help make a positive impact in someone else's life. Icess enjoys taking care of her “spoiled” Doberman, named Nemesis. Icess also states when she is not spoiling her pet, she indulges in retail therapy, dancing, singing, traveling, and experiencing/tasting different foods. Icess feels fortunate to be part of the AmeriCorps VISTA and Great Expectations at PVCC programs and looks forward to what the remainder of the year holds. The best advice Icess quotes receiving is, "every day is another day to celebrate."
