Olivet College students spend weekend serving flood victims
Sep 20, 2010

Seventeen Olivet College students spent the weekend of Sept. 10-12 serving others in Griffith, Ind. The students worked with Lakeshore Area Regional Recovery of Indiana, an organization created to aid victims of floods caused by remnants of Hurricane Ike. Their work consisted of laying drain tiles in homes of those still recovering from the disaster.

Students who attended the trip include: Thomas Adams, a freshman from Homer; Aaron Clark, a freshman from Gobles; Josh DeRidder, a freshman from Gobles; Dan Dobring, a sophomore from Walled Lake; James Dye, a sophomore from Newaygo; Abigail Fangboner, a junior from Lansing; Emily Heeren, a sophomore from Rockford; Ashley Hettinger, a freshman from Joliet, Ill.; Rebecca Jones, a sophomore from Lansing; Angelique Korstanje, a senior from Charlotte; Eliseo Martin, a freshman from Lansing; Sarah Schertel, a freshman from Farmington Hills; Erica Schlabach, a sophomore from Goshen, Ind.; Joel Schwiebert, a freshman from Canton; Lindsay Selis, a sophomore from Potterville; Meghan Taylor, a freshman from Kalamazoo; and Jessica Zentz, a junior from Elsie. The trip was advised by Mike Fales, director of service learning and campus ministries, and Blake Walters, Olivets community service coordinator.

This was the first service trip hosted by Olivet for the 2010-11 academic year. Last year, the college hosted 14 overnight service trips. For more information, or to learn more about other service learning opportunities at Olivet, contact Fales at (269) 749-7624.
