Spring break trips
Hesston College students, faculty and staff dispersed across North America during spring break March 5 to 13. A group of 10 students and four faculty/staff leaders spent the week in Mexico constructing a house through the organization i6eight. Faculty member John Sharp ’73, Tony Brown ’69 and alumni Bruce ’72 and Joy (Lichti) ’72 Rogers led a group of students and friends of the college to the Deep South on a Civil Rights Seminar to learn more about the 1960s civil rights movement. The 23-member Bel Canto Singers performed at 13 stops throughout Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana and Iowa. (photo above by Brent Brockmueller from the spring break service trip to Mexico)
Students work on-campus internships
A group of Hesston College students honed their professional skills as interns with the college’s Marketing and Communications team during the spring semester. The internship is an opportunity for students to expand their skills and creativity and build their professional portfolios as freshmen and sophomores – a step in the process that many students don’t start until their junior and senior years. The interns for the spring 2016 semester, chosen through a competitive application and interview process, are Tori Byler ’17, Belleville, Pa., photography; Christy Kauffman ’17, West Liberty, Ohio, graphic design; Abby Musser ’16, Newport News, Va., news and features writing; Karli Rodriguez ’16, Denver, Colo., graphic design; and Caleb Schrock-Hurst ’16, Harrisonburg, Va., sports information.
