Whitewater, WI and the Peace Corps

by Danny Zawacki

So get this, Peace Corps announced their “Top Volunteer-Producing States and Metropolitan Areas for 2013” today, and it’s surprising, but my tiny hometown barely made one of the lists. At first, I got really excited thinking it was me who made the list, but it’s for 2013 and it’s been over a year since I got back. It makes me wonder if I know the person serving. Probably.

I did the math, the 2010 census states the population of Whitewater as 14,390. The numbers are based out of 100,000 residents. One person makes up about 6.949 of the 7.8. I’m just going to go ahead and assume somehow, my service ending in 2012, makes up the difference of that.
