The three Southwestern College service learning teams will have a photo gallery on display April 16 through May 5 at College Hill Coffee in Winfield.
Theme of the display is the partnership of students from Green Team Southwestern, Leadership Southwestern, and Discipleship Southwestern partnering with community organizations.
“All community members are encouraged to stop by throughout these three weeks and see the great work going on out in the community,” says Lindsay Wilke, assistant director of Leadership Southwestern. “The partnerships formed between Southwestern College and the community are strong, and they are a win-win for everyone.”
The list of community partners being recognized includes:
• Green Team Southwestern—City of Winfield recycling, Cates Supply, Sodexo, Winfield High School, Hustler Turf, and Country View Elementary.
• Leadership Southwestern—Legacy Foundation, Whittier, Lowell, and Irving Elementary, Elks Club, Rotary Club, Creative Community Living, and Cowley County K-State Research Extension Office.
• Discipleship—Salvation Army, First United Methodist Church, and Eagle’s Nest.
A formal reception to recognize these partners will be on Monday, April 16, at 5 p.m. at College Hill Coffee.
Wilke adds that the display kickoff is in conjunction with National Volunteer Week (April 15-21), celebrating people in action.
