Pioneers: A Poughkeepsie Magazine

This magazine was researched and written by Sage Kawelo, a participant in the Marie and Rupert Tarver Summer Internship program, which enables Marist College undergraduates to work on a community project in collaboration with a local non-profit organization. The views included in this magazine are the express views of the interviewer and interviewees alone.


The Tarver Summer Internship Program honors the exceptional accomplishments of Mrs. Marie Tarver, a greatly respected community leader, and her husband, the late Mr. Rupert Tarver, a renowned civil rights pioneer in the Hudson Valley. The program supports summer undergraduate internships through the Marist College Center for Civic Engagement and Leadership. As an integral component of the program, interns connect with an approved nonprofit organization in the Hudson Valley and complete agreed-upon goals and objectives during the summer term. Tarver Interns work with faculty and their nonprofit partner to design their internship project and identify the key issues that their work will address. Hudson River Housing Inc. provided support by hosting this student.


Thank you to all participants!
