Update on College Service Learning Projects


College Community,

We had a very successful Martin Luther King, Jr. week of service.

On Wednesday, Jan. 23, 53 students and three faculty members attended two viewings of the Martin Luther King, Jr. “I Have a Dream” speech.

Thank you, Steve Hooker, Mr. Morford, Kathleen Hathaway, and Kelly Hacker for encouraging your students to participate in this event and for inspiring the discussion sessions.

From Jan. 23 through 25, CPTC students and faculty wrote over 275 letters to our troops and wounded warriors! I am happy to announce that the winner of the Service Learning Pizza Party is Human Services who wrote a total of 91 letters – way to go!! Low-Voltage wrote 80 letters, CNISS wrote 54 letters.

I want to also say a big thank you to the Northwest Career and Technical High School English 94 class who wrote 24 letters to our troops and wounded warriors.

Thank you also to ECE, Nursing, Histology, and the many others who helped make these events a big success.

I look forward to assisting students and faculty with service learning projects.  If you are in need of ideas or have questions about how to implement service learning into your program, please call, email me or feel free to stop by Building 10, room 101.

Thank you for your support,
