This turnout is amazing! It’s so inspiring to see such enthusiastic volunteers this morning. I know it’s an early start for a weekend, but we commend you for giving your time and energy to serving our M Partner communities of Charleston, Lexington, and New Albany. It’s so rewarding to see this army of students ready to mobilize and embrace this wonderful opportunity to serve. You embody our university’s commitment to community engagement in action.
