High school students from throughout Southwestern Community College’s service area participated in a pair of service projects last month. The students, who are in SCC’s Upward Bound program, made holiday cards that were sent to U.S. troops deployed overseas. They also wrapped small toiletry items that were given out at Sylva’s Community Table.
“Our students had a lot of fun performing these projects,” said Annette Kesgen, director of SCC’s Upward Bound program. “It’s really quite impressive to see these young people who already grasp the value of serving others, looking out for our neighbors and showing gratitude to the men and women in uniform who keep us safe.”
