'WSU for kids' gives service to Kansas community
Mar 28, 2014 4:38 AM | Print

Wichita State University's Office of Student Involvement is engaging the school's mission of community service with "WSU for the Kids" immersion trip.

Fifty WSU students will travel to Wellington (Kan.) School District 353 Saturday, April 5, in an effort to expand the university's service projects supporting Kansas communities.

The trip, in collaboration with the United Way of the Plains, will put the Shocker contingent to work on upkeep for school facilities. The students will tour the Roosevelt Education Center for students with special needs, help paint classrooms, assist with yard maintenance and clean and organize classroom spaces.

All of the volunteer work will contribute to much-needed end-of-year refurbishing for the property that will benefit Wellington students. This project follows Student Involvement's fall 2013 Moore, Okla., immersion trip.

For more information, contact Lyston Skerritt, coordinator of student organizations and civic engagement at 316-978-3022 or getinvolved@wichita.edu.
