Students Travel Nearby and Abroad for Spring Break Service Trips

Published on Tue, February 28, 2012

What do West Virginia, Missouri, Philadelphia and Honduras have in common?

Answer: students from Marywood University will travel to these locations, working to empower communities through disaster relief, house restoration and tutoring. Forty-five volunteers, composed of students, faculty and staff, have been busy fundraising for months.

One of these students, Jessica Manning, a junior majoring in art education, will be going to West Virginia to aid in several Habitat for Humanity projects.

"I love learning about new people and places," Manning said. "It's really exciting."

Listen to Kenny Luck, coordinator of public relations and new media, talk with Ann O'Brien, assistant director of service-learning and community service, and Meghan Coyle, a graduate assistant, about Campus Ministry service trips.
