Service Scholars students at Second Chance

On Oct. 17, Service Scholars joined with the Sisters of Notre de Namur for a Live the Good service project. In the morning, students helped out at Second Chance, a nonprofit that deconstructs buildings and homes and salvages usable materials that they then make available to the public through its 200,000 square feet of retail space. Afterward, the students went to the Sisters' convent, which neighbors the Greenspring campus, for lunch and reflection on the meaning and value of serving the community. Afterward, Service Scholar Lauren Novsak (business communication '19) said, "I enjoyed learning more about the history of the values of Villa Julie and Stevenson and their connection to Sister Julie. Through the reflection with the Sisters, we were able to understand our common interests in serving the community."
