Solange Kellermann

Solange Kellermann

Solange Kellermann was drawn to serving on the Portland ESL Scholarship Fund Board by its mission and her experiences as an immigrant. "If there had been a program like this when we came to the US, it would have my mother's life and, by extension, my life so much easier."

Solange has a B.A. in Education from Paterson State College, an M.A. in Public Policy from USM's Muskie School of Public Policy, and is currently an art major at USM. She has served on the boards of Congregation Bet Ha'am, Cooperative Extension and Tengo Voz. She has made use of her organizational skills as a program coordinator at Portland Adult Education, co-owner of a small retail store, as Clutter Doc, and coordinating yearly events. Her interests include Balkan dancing, mysteries, and visiting family in Peru, Canada and France.
