Montana Bass, B.A., Health Education Paraprofessional

Montana is joining the WRC this year as our Health Education Paraprofessional. Montana graduated from CC last May as a Comparative Literature major. During her time at CC, Montana was involved in addressing gender-based violence as a member of START. She is excited to continue that work and more this year through her position at the WRC, and to keep working to create a healthy campus culture. In our office, she will be helping implement and develop programs, and collaborating with students and other campus partners. When she’s not working, Montana spends as much time as she can dancing, and is hoping to bring some movement to campus programming. Catch her the first Saturday of every block rolling around on the floor in Cossit.
