November's Macbassador of the Month is Marcia Peters '89 in recognition of her service to students and organizing the college's LGBT alumni network, Scots Pride.

For the last two career networking nights, she shared her valuable perspective (from the hiring side of job interviews) with Macalester students, covering topics including interviewing techniques, appropriate attire, behavior, and mannerisms. As Scots Pride organizer, she has served as the main contact for several events for LGBT alumni, their partners, and allies. She also spoke with students at the 'Out at Work' lunch last spring, providing advice to LGBT seniors about researching and identifying LGBT-friendly employers. "It is important to me to be present as an 'out' role model for the students," she said, "because there weren't any when I was at Mac."

In addition to her volunteer time, Marcia has given to the Annual Fund every year since 2004. Her loyal financial support of the college ensures the continued excellence of the Macalester experience.
