85 Students returned one week ago after spending their Spring Breaks 
doing community work in different areas around the United States.  For 
the past 8 months they had been preparing for their trips.  Students 
learned about the issues they would be working with, they learned about 
the people they would be working with and they learned about themselves.

It is incredible to hear about the experiences people have had over the

staff.  You all put a lot of work into your experience - Congratulations.

I also wanted to recognize the hard work of Charlie Wallace and Abby 
Benedetto...Thanks for doing all that you did.
