"Our mission is world peace and friendship."

Peace Corps

Helen Lowman says service in the Peace Corps benefits everyone involved; and she should know - she's a former volunteer herself and the Peace Corps' former regional director for Europe, the Mediterranean and Asia. She's now the Peace Corps' Associate Director for Volunteer Recruitment and Selection.

Lowman is visiting the University of Montana and Montana State University this week, highlighting Montana's legacy of Peace Corps service.
       In this evening's feature interview with Edward O'Brien, Lowman discusses that legacy and explains how she became involved in the Peace Corps.

Edward O’Brien first landed at Montana Public Radio three decades ago as a news intern while attending the UM School of Journalism. He covers a wide range of stories from around the state.
