Students who do 50+ hours beyond S-L course requirements earn a $50 prize!
Every so often, we find that students go above and beyond the requirements for service-learning for their classes, dedicating their free time and service to the community. Dr. Ronnie Mulford had the brilliant idea of recognizing these exemplary students. She graciously sponsored an award of $50 for each student who gives 50 hours above and beyond the hours required for class. Today’s awardee is Ms. Holly Hewitt. Holly served for about 88 hours at Next Step Homeless Shelter (holly says that she felt that she had helped on a basic level through her tutoring of the keiki there, but she also was able to learn about their life circumstances and better understand the way the world works. She came away with a feeling of fulfillment and different outlook on life.
Mahalo to sponsor "Auntie Ronnie," for her generous support of our S-L students!
