In July 2015 (2558), Country Director Kevin Quigley will officially step down from serving in Peace Corps Thailand. Because he served as a PCV in Thailand from 1976-1979, Doctor Quigley was uniquely qualified to take on the Country Director assignment in 2012. He has served as an inspiration of cultural understanding and integration for hundreds of volunteers, as well as an inspiration for volunteers to keep studying Thai!
“Thank you Khun Kevin for your leadership and the way you advocate for Peace Corps Thailand constantly. Thank you for giving me such an excellent opportunity to be a part of the team and for your guidance as I learn my way. The students at Marlboro are very fortunate!! All the best!”

“Khun Kevin is a super supportive boss!!! Fully empowers the staff. I will miss him, and his free coffee!!!!”
“Peace Corps Thailand’s Health Unit wishes you the best at Marlboro College. We appreciated the leadership you provided during your tenure as Country Director in Thailand. Stay well”
“Your support to volunteers and staff is very meaningful. You are always asking how you can help. That is so nice. Serving as a Country Director and Volunteers in Thailand is not an easy job but you did a great job with your outstanding efforts. You will always be in our hearts and memories. I am very fortunate to work with you.”
“It’s been a pleasure to have worked with you (even just for a short period). I wish you all the best and enjoy your new journey in the homeland and with your family na ka” 🙂
“Khun Kevin, you bring out the best of Peace Corps Thailand and guide us all with your great leadership and compassion. You help us grow with love and sense of humor. Thank you for having been here with all of us.”
“I’m very grateful for all of the Peace Corps Volunteers, former volunteers, staff and beyond. You gave us direction and vision. You taught us how to be happier at work. You are an encyclopedia, google and English-Thai/Thai-English dictionary that walks and talks. You are my great teacher, mentor and leader. I’m very appreciative and fortunate to know you and work with you.”
“You have been a good friend and colleague plus a great Irishman….so in honor of your new job in the beautiful N.E….
May the Irish hills caress you.
May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.
We will miss but I am thrilled that you are following your dreams and adding a new chapter in your amazing life! Always remember to forget the friends that proved untrue. But never forget to remember those that have stuck by you.”
“It’s been a pleasure to work with you. You deserve all the best. Thank you very much naka.”
“I appreciate having had the opportunity to work with you, Khun Kevin. Thank you for the support, guidance, and encouragement you have provided me. Have a good luck.
On behalf of the Regional Medevac Hub, we would like to say that Khun Kevin has been very, very supportive of the Regional Medevac Hub and that he has shown great interest in our activities. He even went so far as to visit sick Medevac PCVs at the hospital occasionally!
We feel embraced and well integrated into post’s activities. We feel especially grateful for the opportunity to participate in staff development activities, including the staff retreat in November 2014.
