Aude Bechu ’16 is the Kenney Community Center’s Volunteer of the Week.

Bechu participated in the community service pre-orientation program, where she volunteered locally. She also volunteered at John Calvin Toll Day of Service, and is a member of the Environmental Club, Equestrian Club and the Multifaith Forum.

During winter break, Bechu worked at Pegasus, a therapeutic horseback riding center in her town. “The little things, like talking to a child on the horse and helping them steer, helped a kid achieve more independence and confidence,” she said.

Bechu is also the Kenney Center’s most dedicated member of the Homework Help after school program, where she assists local children with their work and plays games with them.

“We really appreciate Aude’s dedication to the program and that she came every week,” said Janet Sweeney, program director.

Originally from North Salem, N.Y., Bechu is a chemistry major.
