Amanda osuna

This past summer, RCGV doctoral student Amanda Osuna (School of Criminal Justice) got some unexpected news. Looking for extra cash, she applied for a job through an agency working with at-risk youth in Lansing. However, that all changed when she was told she’d be stationed instead at the United Methodist Church over 60 miles away in Riverdale, MI.
