April 12, 2007 - Hastings College to host One Campus, One Community luncheon
The Hastings College Vocation and Values Program will host a “One Campus, One Community” luncheon Tuesday, April 17, from 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m., in Hazelrigg Student Union, Rooms A and B.
Four Hastings College students will discuss “Lives of Commitment” and their work with helping others. The inaugural Judy Sandeen Service Award will also be presented. Sandeen, who will retire in June, has served as director of campus health services at Hastings College for the past 29 years. The award will be given annually to a student group on campus to recognize outstanding service to the college community, local community, national community, and/or to the world community.
This year, Sandeen will receive the award named in her honor, and be recognized for the development of, and work with, the college’s peer education program.
Students and the service projects they will discuss are:
Ashley Huff, SOAR (Students Outreach and Advocacy Resources) Hurricane Katrina
spring break trip leader, senior, daughter of Harold/Pamela Huff,
Christine Olk, Habitat for Humanity spring break trip to Winston-Salem, N.C.,
freshman, daughter of Michael/Judie Olk, Gretna, Neb.
Whitney Burr, Guatemala interim service trip, junior, daughter of Mark/Marcy Burr,
Jossy Newquist, Peer Education leader, junior, daughter of Ernest/Kristine Newquist,
Hastings College students serve local agencies such as Big Brothers, Big Sisters, Catholic Social Services, Crossroads Center, the public schools, YMCA, YWCA, and others. They have addressed issues of hunger, homelessness, health, and education.
Nationally, students participated in Habitat for Humanity projects, helped with hurricane relief, and traveled to Washington, D.C., to lobby on behalf of the needs of children at Advocacy Days.
“One Campus, One Community” luncheons are funded through the Lilly Endowment Inc., to encourage communication between the college and Hastings community. Approximately 70 local community leaders, including social service organizations, ministers, and campus leaders, faculty and students will be in attendance.
