Wesley Honors House Residents Give Back to Wesley Community and Beyond
Residential students living in Wesley College’s Honors House completed several community service events in the Fall 2010 semester. Between six to eight students participated in the Dover AIDS Walk, started a recycling program and took part in the Wesley volleyball team’s “pink out” in support of breast cancer research.
Students must have a 3.0 grade point average and receive approval to live in the Honors House, located at the intersection of Division and Bradford streets on the Wesley College campus. Junior Danielle Richey serves as a residence life liaison for the House and has taken initiative to involve the students in various events happening on campus and within the community.
“It demonstrates a lot about how high-achieving students are active on campus and in the local community,” said Director of the Honors Program Dr. Jeffrey Gibson. “This group of students makes campus and the world better. I believe that they find real satisfaction in the work they do for themselves in the classroom and for others in the community.”
After dressing in pink and cheering for friends at a volleyball game in October, the group is gearing up for Thanksgiving. The residents’ next project is a canned food drive for those in need. “I am really proud,” said Gibson.
