Resident Ashley Peabody, daughter of Donna and Richard Peabody, a 2011 graduate of South Burlington High School, is taking a semester off from her current studies at Hofstra University as a marketing major and a fine arts minor to embark on a service trip to Bali, Indonesia. The service trip is hosted by the International Volunteer Headquarters out of New Zealand, which provides volunteer opportunities in 25 different locations around the world. While in Bali, Ashley will be volunteering in the kindergarten program, exposing 4 and 5 year olds to the English language before they begin formal schooling. After returning from Bali, she plans to complete her studies and graduate in winter 2015.
