Wesleyan Service Day Makes an Impact

in News by

Service Day was a chance for all Wesleyan students to get out and make a difference for others. Wesleyan students are incredibly fortunate to work at a school with such a dedicated staff and facilities crew, and the students were excited to be able to give back.

The first of a planned series of annual Service Days offered many opportunities to serve. Omicron Service Society Director Nathan Emmelhainz said, “[Service Day first came to fruition when] Kelsey Rappe came up with the idea (she remembered both 8th grade service day, and the HS service day that her older siblings did years ago). 5-10 years ago there was an annual service day that was a day of no classes for the whole high school.  This was changed with an intent to have service always be voluntary – rather than compulsory.  This year’s event was entirely voluntary, and was sufficiently successful that we will try it again next year.  It will remain voluntary – as an option on PSAT day.”
