Dr. Julie Bausman, assistant professor of education at Waynesburg University, will lead a group of five University students to Nassau, Bahamas, for a mission service trip during winter break. From Sunday, Jan. 5, to Friday, Jan. 10, the team will work in conjunction with Mission Academy Ministries to teach first and second grade reading and math lessons. They will also spend time with the children during recess and lunch and can observe in the classrooms. 

Mission Academy Ministries is a non-profit organization with a passionate commitment to helping students grow closer to Christ through life-changing mission trips, day events and retreats.  

“Our desire is to share our abilities and talents with the children in the school,” Bausman said. “We are excited about the opportunity to learn about education in another country as well. This trip will further our goal of learning to be leaders who transform their world for the glory of God.”

Students participating in the trip include:

•Robi Arbogast, a sophomore early childhood education (special education) major from Waynesburg, Pa. (Waynesburg Central High School) 

•Jenny Hage, a senior early childhood education (special education) major from New Brighton, Pa. (New Brighton Area Senior High School) 

•Shakila Kienholz, a sophomore early childhood education (special education) major from Erie, Pa. (Fort Le Boeuf High School)

•Rebecca Lane, a junior early childhood education (special education) major from Ellwood City, Pa. (Laurel Junior-Senior High School)
