In one corner we have Ben Spangler, our new educator. His spontaneous, excitable personality has been giving everyone at Appalshop big smiles since his arrival. Ben was born and raised in Letcher County and is so excited to be back home among friends and family.
In the other corner we have Eagle Valiant Brosi who’s quiet and demure professionalism really gets things done. Eagle is our VISTA for this year. Previously employeed at Pine Mountain Settlement School in Harlan County, he often came to Whitesburg on his free time. ”I’ve always wanted to live in Whitesburg,” Eagle says. ”Not to change things or anything. I just love how beautiful it is and I like the way the buildings look.” And when asked about his position at AMI- Eagle says, “I really think I need to get it going for the teens!”
