Area Peace Corps volunteer calls his time life changing

In its nearly 60-years of existence, the Peace Corps has been very well represented in Door County.  25 returning Peace Corps volunteers now call Door County home, including Dennis White of Sturgeon Bay.  He first considered volunteering in high school and signed up out of college for a two-year tour in Iran. 



White says he became as much of a student as a teacher during his time in Iran.  He says his experience provided new perspectives that, initially, made for a challenging transition back to American culture. 


White encourages any college student to seriously consider Peace Corps service.  It didn't take much to convince his daughter, who decided on her own to sign up and serve in Uganda.
