Shawnee State Students Volunteer at 14th Street Community
Shawnee State University students participated in the 14th
Street Community Center’s MLK Day of Service on Monday, Jan.
18. The day began at 9 a.m. with student volunteers setting
up for the program, food preparation and spending time with
the youth who attended.
Cadogan, director of Operation Safety Net (Scioto County
Homeless Shelter) gave a presentation on the history and
legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
paired with children to work on crafts and other educational
activities that demonstrated the significance of King and
how his perseverance has impacted their lives.
The theme of
the day was “Footsteps” and how it takes a single footstep
to begin a journey and how the youth need to take steps now
that will take them where they want to go in life with a
strong emphasis on education.
