Ericka Fisher Profiled in Holy Cross Magazine’s Fall Issue

November 1st, 2013 by 

Ericka Fisher ’96, a native of Worcester, returned to Holy Cross after studying counseling and social justice at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. Drawn by Holy Cross’ mission for social justice, Fisher returned to express her desire to help Worcester schoolchildren, offering guidance counseling, career assessment, mentorship and tutoring with the help of current Holy Cross undergraduates.

“I came back to Holy Cross because I could do what I was called to do,” she says. “I consider teaching a calling just like the call to ministry. Social justice runs deep in my soul. I get to do everything I love-working with children and helping the community by working in the schools. Then I get to come back to campus and teach future teachers. It’s the full package here.”
