LEWISTON – Kathryn M. King of Turner is one of 14 students serving this year as resident coordinators at Bates College.

As a resident coordinator, King will serve as a counselor and resource person for other students living in her residence.

“The RCs are entrusted with a great deal of responsibility and must exercise sound judgment,” said Tedd Goundie, dean of students. RCs are selected on the basis of demonstrated leadership ability, sensitivity and a successful undergraduate career. Just before the academic year begins, new RCs undergo a weeklong comprehensive training with staff from the dean of students office to prepare them for their role.

King, a senior dean’s list student, is the daughter of Neal and Kathryn King, 129 East Hebron Rd. She participated in women’s basketball and outdoor track in 2001-02, interned with the Collaborative Refugee Services Program in Lewiston during the summer of 2002 and volunteered at the Leadership Academy in 2002.

King, a 2001 graduate of Leavitt Area High School in Turner, participated in the 2003 Career Discovery Internship Program and the 2004 Mount David Summit. She was a junior adviser for 2003-04.
