The Suffolk News-Herald in Suffolk, Va. featured a group of College of the Holy Cross students in a recent story, profiling the projects students were working on in the town, which included sprucing up the fellowship hall of the Macedonia African Methodist Episcopal Church and renovating a home next door that the church hopes to use to house a homeless family. Group leader Rosie Henry ’14 explained that it was all part of participating in the College’s Spring Break Immersion Program.
“We learn from the community. They have showed us kind of a passion for life,” said Henry. The experience allows students “to be men and women for others” she added.
