Meet Shaneese Little

April 3, 2012 at 3:13 pm Leave a comment

Shaneese is one of our new community outreach Fellows.  She is a public health education associate at North Carolina Central University, and her Fellowship at Clean Energy Durham is funded by the State Energy Office. She has been part of the team since March 5th and has shared wonderful ideas on how to recruit participants for the Clean Energy Durham Hands-On Workshops held in Warren County.

Shaneese is originally from Oxon Hill, MD and she said of her work in Warren County, “Being a city girl, Warren County was a new experience for me because I am used to seeing houses close and compact and it was different working in an environment where houses are about a mile apart.”  Understanding how people operate in rural areas was a new challenge for her, and she immediately became interested in wanting to bring information to the residents in this area.

For the past 3 weeks she and the community outreach team have made numerous trips to Warren County to attend different events.  At a recent event, residents recognized her and greeted her with welcome arms.  “Warren County residents seem to be leery of outsiders at first,” she says, “but my goal is to make an impact big enough to encourage some alterations.”
