Olivet College students partner with Morgan-Scott Project
Apr 26, 2011

Fourteen Olivet College students and two staff members recently spent a weekend serving others with the Morgan-Scott Project in Deerlodge, Tenn. The students departed campus April 8 and returned April 10 as part of the college’s monthly service trip program.

The Morgan-Scott Project develops activities, provides training, offers assistance and gives support to residents of Morgan and Scott counties, two of the most impoverished areas of Tennessee. The students participated in the organization’s Good Earth program, which consisted of handing out soil, seeds and fertilizer to families, and promoting sustainable agriculture and healthy nutrition.

Rev. Mike Fales, director of service learning and campus ministries, coordinated the trip. Assisting Fales was Blake Walters, a 2010 Olivet graduate who now serves as the college’s community service coordinator.

Students who participated in the trip include: Avery Brown, a junior from Canton; Brittany Brown, a sophomore from Inkster; Shyquarius Hunter, a freshman from Grand Rapids; Joel Knight, a sophomore from Battle Creek; Jania McCorkle, a freshman from Southfield; Nicholas Mead, a junior from Charlotte; Lawrence Moss, a sophomore from Brighton; Jamell Parker, a sophomore from Highland Park; Sarah Phillips, a junior from Hastings; Riana Rowles, a junior from South Haven; Ross Sanders, a junior from Eastpointe; Mallory Schug, a junior from Climax; Meghan Taylor, a freshman from Kalamazoo; and Eleri Thomas, a sophomore from Bellevue.

For more information about this trip or any of the college’s monthly service trips, contact Fales at (269) 749-7624.
