Conway’s first and Faulkner County’s second young person to be accepted by the Peace Corps left this week for New York, en route to Camp Crozier, Puerto Rico, to begin the first training for an assignment in Peru.
Charles Thomas Huss, 23, son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Huss, applied for the Peace Corps while he was working in Greenville, Miss., last summer. He had abandoned the idea of being accepted, however, and had come home to volunteer for some branch of the service as time for his draft notice neared.
On the day he left to go to a recruiting station a letter of acceptance came.
Huss, along with 49 others, will spend from March 4-29 in Puerto Rico in physical training for his new assignment.
