Garcia And Hart To Represent SCCC/ATS As Kansas Corps Volunteers
01/07/2010

Lacy Garcia of Lakin and Katie Hart of Hugoton are representing Seward

County Community College/Area Technical School as Kansas Corps Volunteer

Campus Leaders for the 2009-10 school year.

AmeriCorps is a network of national service programs that engages Americans

in intensive service to meet the nation¹s critical needs in education,

public safety, health and environment.

Throughout the year, these two students will be looking for students who

would like to assist them with their volunteer projects that will be good

for the community and Kansas.

³I am looking forward to helping as many people as possible in the

community,² said Garcia. ³I have always enjoyed doing community service and

being selected is a great honor.

One of their first volunteer projects was in Greensburg, Kansas, where they

helped rebuild parts of the community.

³The trip to Greensburg was such a great experience,² Garcia said. ³I had

gone before to help clean up right after the tornado hit, and to see how

much progress has been made is fantastic. While in Greensburg we planted

trees, moved mulch, and I even learned how to spackle a house. It was a

fantastic experience and I'm glad I was apart of it.²

Through the college¹s student government association, Garcia said she

learned about the scholarship program that helps with community service.

³Since I have always enjoyed helping others and doing community service I

decided to apply for the scholarship.

The two volunteers will next help coordinate service activities on Kansas

Day 2010 in Topeka.
