Service Isn’t Just for Students!

Service isn’t just for Wheeling Jesuit students anymore!  26 university employees left campus on September 11th for the annual Day of Caring sponsored by the United Way of the Upper Ohio Valley.  They volunteered at such sites as  the YWCA, Children's Museum,  Salvation Army, Sandscrest Boy Scout Camp and Sanford Center.  Becky Forney, Director of Professional and Graduate Studies, has been doing this for 12 years.  She says that, "It's a chance to do something for the community… It's fun to be with your co-workers and get to see a job through to its completion in a single day." WJU employees are able to take up to three days off a year for mission-related activities such as this to celebrate the spirit of our Jesuit tradition.  Keep it up!
