For the duration of their spring break, 25 Waynesburg University students will travel to Concord, N.C., from Saturday, March 8, through Sunday, March 16. Chad Sherman, assistant professor of communication, and Brandon Szuminsky, instructor of communication, will serve as trip leaders.

To address substandard housing issues in North Carolina, students will serve with the Lake Norman, N.C., Habitat for Humanity affiliate to assist in building homes for residents. All participating students have previously served with Habitat for Humanity.
