  • what is your dream?

  • the dream share project

    In the dreary month of February, when the sun doesn’t fully shine, cold snow covers the ground, and exams seem to all fall in the same week, my residents and I were challenged to think about our dreams. It wasn’t just thinking about our dreams, it was learning about how to get there. And not […]

  • perserving a legacy

    January 26, 2013

    The organizers of the MLK Challenge assigned each group a random service event, and my group was chosen to gather supplies for Life Line, which provided services to women with unplanned pregnancies. Originally, we planned to set up a table outside of a few local businesses, but they all turned us down. Therefore, we decided […]

  • thanks for your love

    November 27, 2012

    Service has taught me the importance of love. Moreover, I have learned that one way I can love others is through dedicating time to them. Now I’ll admit first off that sometimes I struggle with this because I get really wrapped up in my own life. What am I going to major in? What is […]

  • humbling service

    November 15, 2012

    Twin Pines was a truly humbling experience. You don’t truly realize what you have until you’ve been there. It helped me to see that I have been given so much, and so I must use those talents to help others. -Scott

  • a trip to twin pines

    November 8, 2012

    Last year I “adopted” a grandparent at Twin Pines Adult Care Center. I visited him almost every Saturday for five months. Summer quickly came in the way, as I had to head home, but I didn’t forget about him.  This weekend we were finally reunited. When I walked in to his room he remembered me […]

  • service is what you make it!

    October 9, 2012

    One of the adult volunteers mentioned that food service was not meant to be fun…Boy did we prove her wrong! Pinterest, Oscars, Fish’n Chips, Big Birds..These are just a few of the names we came up with for the food we served. I would do it again in a heart beat!   -Scott
