Students to serve in Gettysburg during Fall Break

This marks the fifth year Waynesburg students will serve in Gettysburg

Teghan Simonton Oct 8, 2018

Led by Rea Redd, director of the Eberly Library, and Courtney Dennis, associate director of the Paul R. Stewart Museum, 16 students will serve in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania during fall break. The trip will run from Saturday, Oct. 13, to Thursday, Oct. 18.

This is the fifth year Waynesburg students will serve in Gettysburg. This year, students will work with different organizations including the Seminary Ridge Historical Museum, Gettysburg Battlefield National Museum, the Gettysburg Battlefield Preservation Society, and other historical groups.

Because of its popularity, the trip has expanded in the past to include different projects at Antietam, Harper’s Ferry, and the National Museum of Civil War Medicine. This year, Redd said he hopes to incorporate speaking with a National Park police officer at Gettysburg.

For more information, contact Kelley Hardie, assistant dean of student services and director of the Center for Service Leadership, at 724-852-3461.

Founded in 1849 by the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, Waynesburg University is located on a traditional campus in the hills of southwestern Pennsylvania, with three additional sites located in the Pittsburgh region. The University is one of only 22 Bonner Scholar schools in the country, offering local, regional and international opportunities to touch the lives of others through service.
