LLCC education students recently participated a capstone meeting for the academic year. While networking and enjoying pizza, the students received information on transferring with their associate degree, new state requirements for educators and changes in the teacher education field.
As part of LLCC’s Education 220: Diversity of Schools and Society class, taught by Dr. Taiebeh Hosseinali, students were assigned to design and implement a community engagement project in which they could help make a difference in our community. One of the teams chose to collect and disseminate hygiene supplies and serve a meal to those who visit St. John’s Breadline. To achieve their goals, students reached out to friends, family and members of their church and community, and then gathered and organized their collection. On Sunday, April 28, the team delivered and disseminated boxes of hygiene products at the Breadline. They also spent their morning and part of their afternoon to help out prepping and serving a warm meal to participants.
The criminal justice K-9 demonstration planned for today at noon has been cancelled.

In addition, they raised over $200 in cash that they used to purchase a volleyball and badminton net and an assortment of outdoor play equipment.
