FOR RELEASE
2005-03-17
Huntington, Ind.— While many college students take advantage of the country’s sunnier regions for their own enjoyment during Spring Break, several Huntington College students and staff have plans to spend their week serving in Haiti during the week of March 21-25, 2005.

The trip, sponsored by the Huntington College Admissions Office, is led by staff members Shannon Wilson and Jeff Edgel. Seven Student Admissions Staff members will participate in the week of service-oriented projects.

The team to Haiti will work at a local children’s home called House of Blessing. Students will also have the opportunity to assist a medial clinic and visit other orphanages and missions. The team will have a day to spend at Quisqueya Christian School, an English speaking Christian school where Huntington College alumna Lynda Barnum currently teaches.

Students involved with the Haiti team include:

Amanda Frese from Appleton, Wis.
Neil Rupp from Blissfield, Mich.
Kerre Nitz from Saginaw, Mich.
Susanna Truby from Kentwood, Mich.
Sarah Stoner from Indianapolis, Ind.
Anna Briggs from Russell, Pa.
Jordan Smith from Huntington, Ind.
