Ten students will attend the Greene County Immersion service trip, in Waynesburg, Pennsylvania. Led by Kelley Hardie, assistant dean of student services and director of the Center for Service Leadership, the Greene County Immersion trip will start Sunday, Oct. 13, and conclude Saturday, Oct. 19.
Waynesburg students have been involved with Greene County Immersion for 13 years.
This year, students will volunteer at 2nd Sam 9, St. Ann’s Good Neighbor Dinner Program, the Greene County Historical Society, the Greene County Chapter of Project Linus, Corner Cupboard Food Bank and the Ronald McDonald House. Students will have the opportunity to make security blankets for people in need and assist with packing food pantries and distributing food boxes.
“[I hope students] learn more about the social needs that exist within Greene County and fall in love with one of these service sites and continue to serve after the trip,” said Hardie.
The students attending the trip include:
- Noah Delp, junior biochemistry major from Potter County, Pennsylvania
- Jacqueline Shaw, freshman nursing major from Belle Vernon, Pennsylvania
- Sophia Hicks, freshman business management major from Annapolis, Maryland
- Naomi Swaney, senior international business major from Cranberry Township, Pennsylvania
