FSC students share their service learning research
LAKELAND, Fla. (April 9, 2008) — Florida Southern College students will give presentations to the community on their service learning research. The students are members of a pilot class at the college, one that marries the subject matter of their research and writing class with a community service component. “Sharing the Archives: Service Learning and Polk County Jewry” will take place on April 10 from 6 p.m. to 7:15 p.m. in the William M. Hollis Room on the FSC campus.
For their service experience, the students each performed 25 hours of community service for the Temple Emanuel Archive. Using the upper floor of the Danforth Chapel for their research area, the students collated, electronically reproduced, archivally preserved, and researched/documented each item for cataloguing. After familiarizing themselves with the collections, the students then researched an aspect of Jewish life in Polk County, Fla. The presentations will emphasize experiences in Lakeland and at Temple Emanuel, but will not be limited to temple or religious life.
Students participating in the presentations include Wil Posey, Krystal Caldwell, Andrew Canlon, Kat Church, Kelsey Dunn, Lauren Francona, Chasity Hammit, Katie Hileman, Sable McCullough, Heather Melms, Chelsea Johnson, Mallory Moore, Jon Olbrych, Jenna Rice, Aaron VanDoren, and Brittany Waldrip.
