Students to attend service trip to Bahamas

Rachel Pellegrino Dec 18, 2019

Ten Waynesburg University students will attend the week-long service trip to Nassau, Bahamas, from Saturday, Jan. 4, to Saturday, Jan. 11. The trip will be led by Kylee Sargent, associate director of ITS and client services, and Sarah Bell, career development specialist and study abroad coordinator.

Students will serve at a local school and have the opportunity to teach in classrooms alongside local teachers. This experience will not only benefit the students in the community, but it will also provide a learning experience for the Waynesburg students.

The children from the Bahamas will have the opportunity to learn lessons and participate in activities that they otherwise would not have access to, while Waynesburg’s students gain first-hand experience in an international classroom,” said Bell.

Participating Students:

  • Taylor Staley, senior early childhood education major from Waynesburg, Pennsylvania
  • Samantha Boni, sophomore forensic science major from Canonsburg, Pennsylvania
  • Luke Diel, sophomore political science major from Gibsonia, Pennsylvania
  • Ruthie Buser, junior early childhood education major from Berkeley Springs, West Virginia
  • Brock Leazier, junior early childhood education major from Friedens, Pennsylvania
  • Samantha Pero, junior early childhood education major from Somerset, Pennsylvania
