Professor Jolynn Olive and 20 students from Northwestern College in Orange City, Iowa spent their spring break volunteering in Mount Olive, MS. Professor Oliver is the Secondary Education Coordinator/Multicultural Education Coordinator.
On March 1st the students arrived at Mount Olive Ministries to assist teachers at Grace Christian during school hours, and then worked with the students at Kids Zone (after school program). The even completed small painting projects, and hosted ACT workshops and an Essay Writing workshop.
The students really enjoyed the interaction with the college students and the college students seemed to enjoy their time with the GCS students.
