Over spring break, students from Waynesburg University served with Habitat for Humanity Cabarrus County in Concord, North Carolina. Isaiah Skeete, admissions counselor, and Angelica Good, resident director, led students on the trip.
Repeatedly, I see that Waynesburg University students are going to change this world and this puts a smile on my face.”
“I found great joy in seeing our students doing great work in a community. After this trip, I reflected on my experience and one fact kept popping up in my head. Repeatedly, I see that Waynesburg University students are going to change this world and this puts a smile on my face,” Skeete said.
Over the course of the trip, the group finished the siding on a house and built a shed behind it. Students also worked at one of Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore facilities, which are home improvement stores that sell used items. There, students stocked shelves and priced items.
In addition to completing multiple service projects, students had the opportunity to visit Charlotte Motor Speedway.
According to Skeete, the trip allowed students to put service into perspective in their lives.
“Students realized the value of community service, not only in the community, but for themselves as well. Every student on this trip has the heart to serve others, and this was evident throughout the week. During our reflections, one student shared that this trip opened his eyes to working at a non-profit organization after graduation,” he said.
