A member of a Mennonite Service Adventure team in Albuquerque, New Mexico, found her life's passion not in a classroom but while serving her faith. Originally assigned to a daycare center in Albuquerque, MaryBeth Cornelsen, an Oklahoma native, became involved with serving the homeless.
What began with Cornelsen's efforts to help one homeless man then blossomed into a new purpose in her life. Bethany Bauman Baker was Cornelsen's Service Adventure unit leader and said that Cornelsen's work with the homeless inspired her entire team.
Consequently, Cornelsen reported that she intends on studying social work next fall at Tabor College in Hillsboro, Kan., with the intention of working to empower people who need services.
