DORLY PISKE, the current Partners of the Americas-Wyoming Chapter president and youth volunteering enthusiast dedicates her time to develop the relationship between Wyoming and Latin America through academic, cultural and sports exchanges. The native Brazilian moved to Wyoming in 1985 and now teaches Portuguese at Laramie County Community College and intensive English at the University of Wyoming.
Utilizing her teaching position, Piske has facilitated an affiliation between the Partners of the Americas-Wyoming Chapter and the University of Wyoming as the push to become a part of college campuses grows larger. Ever philanthropic, she also volunteers her time as the advisor to the student chapter.
In 2008, Piske further expanded her service-oriented repertoire and launched the bio-jewelry project. This volunteer-based fundraising project serves as a means to purchase a mobile mammography unit for the De Peito Aberto program of the Federal University of Gioás in Brazil.
Piske continues to make progress with the internal and external Partners of the Americas’ network to connect, serve, and change lives.
