CLARION, Pa. (EYT) – Cheryl Shellhammer, Americorps RSVP Director, is backed up with good advice in her office at the Clarion office of Community Action, Inc.

The first thing people see when they enter her office is a back wall covered with motivational quotes from a variety of authors, from Theodore Roosevelt to Walt Disney to John Lennon.

“The quotes are for me or my volunteers or for anyone who needs them,” said Cheryl.

Community Action Inc. operates Clarion-Indiana-Jefferson Americorps RSVPs.

Some of the quotes include the following:
