While many graduating seniors at Grand Valley are frantically hunting for jobs, Tyler Nickerson is not breaking a sweat. Just one semester shy of graduation, Nickerson, a double major in political science and public and nonprofit administration, accepted a position as the affordable housing advocate for the Grand Rapids Area Coalition to End Homelessness.
Nickerson, who will graduate in May 2010, plans to stay with the coalition after graduation. In the future, he plans to pursue community development opportunities while remaining in the Grand Rapids area.
