Spring on the York College campus

Kelley Gibson '96

Cultural Alliance of York County
“I would not be in York without York College. Coming here, it felt like coming to the place I was meant to be. The skills and experience I gained from the faculty at York College gave me the abilities I needed to jump into the community building work very early on in York... If I had not come to York College, I would never have met my husband of twenty years and started our family."

Current City: York, PA

YCP Degree: BA English
