Olivet College students spend weekend serving with Morgan-Scott Project
Oct 23, 2012

Eight Olivet College students and two staff members traveled to Deer Lodge, Tenn. Oct. 12-14 for a weekend service trip. The students worked with the Morgan-Scott Project, an organization that provides a common cooperative base for churches, agencies and individuals to identify the problems of and provide solutions for people in peril in Morgan and Scott counties of Tennessee.

The students were divided into two groups: Rafael Figueroa, a senior from Lansing; Anjina Griffin, a freshman from Detroit; and Chellel Narcissa, a junior from Detroit; were led by Ian Peters, the college’s community service coordinator, while Beth Conrad, a junior from Ionia; Jaime Cain, a freshman from Grant; Shannon Haines, a freshman from Pinckney; Miranda Miller, a freshman from Mecosta; and Shannon Peterson, a freshman from Detroit; were led by Rev. Mike Fales, director of service learning and campus ministries at Olivet.

Peters’ group painted walls and sawed pipes for running water in a home that previously had none. Fales’ group painted at a food bank and outreach center.

After completing the projects, the group was invited to Scott County Commissioner June Jeffers’ home for a barbeque and bonfire.

For more information on this or any of the college’s service programs, contact Fales at (269) 749-7624 or mfales@olivetcollege.edu.
