Publication Date

Celia Salisbury ’16 is the Kenney Community Center’s Volunteer of the Week.

This past summer, Salisbury worked at Peaceful Acres Horses as a marketing and communications intern, where she helped plan a fundraiser called Kick Cancer’s A**. Peaceful Acres Horses’ mission is to “provide a therapeutic environment for both horses and people to resolve issues related to grief, loss and trauma, and to regain strength and trust.”

In addition to her work with Peaceful Acres Horses, Salisbury has also founded a group on campus that allows students with food restrictions or allergies to communicate with dining services to discuss food safety and allergy-friendly options. She also volunteers for Homeward Bound Dog Rescue in Schenectady.

Originally from Pittsford, N.Y., Salisbury is an organizing theme major hoping to combine social sciences. She is the new member educator in Delta Delta Delta and a member of the Animal Project club, which she helped start on campus. According to Janet Sweeney of the Kenney Center, Salisbury also assisted with this year’s community service pre-orientation program, greeting students and organizing their volunteer efforts at Peaceful Acres.
