Students to serve Greene County residents during Thanksgiving break
Before traveling home for Waynesburg University’s Thanksgiving break, three students and one faculty member will stay on campus to serve the local community.
The group will spend Friday, Nov. 22, through Wednesday, Nov. 27, partnering with Greene County Habitat for Humanity for various daily projects.
Evan Kephart, interim coordinator of University’s Bonner Scholar Program, will lead the team.
“Our main goal is to expose students attending the trip to the poverty that exists around them in Greene County and inspire them to continue to give back to the community even after the project is over,” Kephart said.
Students participating in the service week include:
• Heather Connors, a junior forensic science major from Scottdale, Pa. (Southmoreland High School)
• Justin Johnson, a senior business management major from Washington, Pa. (home schooled)
• Kyle Oland, a senior public relations major from Westminster, Md. (Winters Mill High School)
