Meaningful Service

“Service learning has changed my life forever. That’s all that really needs to be said. We are expanding our Trap/Neuter/Release (Dr. Morrow & Tiger Ranch) project to a new neighborhood with really mean council members. The problem is their ignorance and stubborn attitudes. I grew up with most of these people and I’m taking the matter into my own hands. I can change the world.”

“I think this class was very beneficial. It taught me to allot time to things outside of studying and schoolwork. I learned a lot about myself by being forced to step outside my comfort zone. It was really neat to see kids  becoming interested in science because of what I was teaching them. I was not thinking that I would get such a fulfilling feeling from this project. I think that doing a selfless act shows responsibility, respect and overall maturity. I think this class is a great addition to the science curriculum. This class really opened my eyes to other opportunities in volunteering. I found that although volunteering adds to my workload, it also is a way to relax and have fun while still being productive.”
