The AmeriCorps class is  made up of 18 to 24 year-olds who enter the 10 month program to earn scholarship money or to pay off existing student loans.   They  spend from 4 to 8 weeks  with each sponsor  and will work with 4 to 5 sponsors throughout their 10 month program.     Drummond says they are hard workers and a pleasure to work with and she is honored by their nomination.
