We are delighted to announce that Jenny Gnagey, Housing Resources & Research for OgdenCAN and Adjunct Professor of Economics at Weber State University, has had an article published in the Journal of Higher Education Outreach and Engagement. Her article, "Laying a Foundation for the Fight Against Poverty: Developing a Locally Relevant Poverty Measure with Community-Based Research," details her excellent research on the topic. Please take a moment to read the article. The contents will greatly benefit our OgdenCAN neighborhood. We are thrilled for Jenny and her hard work on OgdenCAN's behalf.
We are happy to announce MJ Munger as our new OgdenCAN Resident Advisory Council Manager
MJ Munger has a deep and abiding commitment to building community. She has worked in college & career readiness, food security, local economic development, and literacy and has seen how interconnected the opportunities and obstacles are for each member of the community. She believes the well-being of her own family is strengthened as the well-being of all other families deepens. A Utah native, MJ has lived throughout the US, most recently returning from a rural/industrial town outside Portland, Oregon. She received a master's degree from Brigham Young University and has nearly raised four fine human beings. MJ is an enthusiastic gardener and orchardist, always searching for the most resilient peaches and cherries and filling any space on offer with herbs and flower bulbs. She loves to read and write and adores libraries and local bookstores. As a long-distance cycling enthusiast, she has a particular interest in active transportation and volunteers with a local grass-roots trail-building group. MJ looks forward to joining the OgdenCAN team to open doors and break down obstacles to a safer, healthier and happier life for our neighbors in Ogden." We are thrilled to welcome her to OgdenCAN where she will oversee the organization of the East Central Neighborhood into 10-block units and to help engage the community in all it has to offer.
