Students Find Meaning During Intentional Fall Break

by Leah Wilson
This year’s Intentional Fall Break was a success as students were immersed in 3.5 days of service.

Taking place over the 2022 academic Fall Break, seven students were able to participate in and serve at Blue Ridge Discovery Center’s Fall Naturalist Rally. A variety of service opportunities within the event include kitchen work (dishwashing, serving, cleaning, cooking, etc.), and rally work (registration, parking, signing people in, and nature program help). When our students weren’t volunteering, they were participating in the event’s educational programs such as nature photography, salamander hiking, flint knapping, arachnid discovery, and stream ecology to name a few.

 

One of the E&H volunteers, Sophomore Maddie Reeser says “I really enjoyed serving a community outside of campus and making friends. On a broader scale, our experience was very eye opening to the beauty of our region because each event was informative, interesting and also fun. In return we saw a huge impact of our services during the rally when working in the kitchen specifically”. The Appalachian Center for Civic Life creates many events like these that bring our Emory & Henry campus closer to the surrounding community. Another volunteer Kinna Magette said, “If I had to describe Intentional Fall Break in one word it would be, love”. Our students were able to be a part of something meaningful during their break.

 

For students who would like to be a part of something similar, the next intentional break opportunity is scheduled for Spring Break 2023. All those interested in service hours, opportunities or community involvement can contact Leah Wilson to discuss further details.
