Students to serve Greene County Habitat for Humanity

The project will take place blocks from the University's campus

Teghan Simonton Oct 8, 2018

Five students will serve Greene County Habitat for Humanity during fall break. The service trip, led by Adrienne Tharp, coordinator for the Bonner Scholar Program, and senior Bonner scholar Paul Hicks, will take place from Monday, Oct. 15, to Friday, Oct. 19.

Tharp said students will be working at a house in Waynesburg, just a few blocks away from campus.

“It’ll be a great week serving with our local chapter of Habitat,” said Tharp. “I am hoping students will walk away from the trip gaining new experiences and skills. In addition, I hope they are able to learn more about our community and how they can continue to serve.”

For more information, contact Kelley Hardie, assistant dean of students 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.
