Six students, led by Adrienne Tharp, coordinator for the Bonner Scholar Program, will be serving Greene County Habitat for Humanity during their fall breaks. The service trip will take place from Monday, Oct. 16 to Friday, Oct. 20.

“They will have an opportunity to work on houses in our community for families,” said Tharp. “They will be gaining new skills, learning more about our community and helping families work on their homes. Students will develop as service leaders by learning more about our community, building on new and old skills and hopefully wanting to continue to serve in the community.”

Students attending the trip include:

  • Lauren Auten, senior art major from Normal, Illinois (Home School)
  • Faith Cross, junior athletic training major from Waynesburg, Pennsylvania (Home School)
  • Alyxis Dunlevy, freshman nursing major from Munhall, Pennsylvania (Steel Valley High School)
  • Elinore Loch, senior biochemistry major from Syracuse, New York (Faith Heritage School)
  • Tristan Sandrosky, senior environmental science major from New Salem, Pennsylvania (Uniontown Area High School)
  • Patience Yobp, junior criminal justice and forensic account major from Mars, Pennsylvania (Mars Area High School)
