Northeast Texas Community College recently held its spring 2011 Service Learning Celebration to honor five students who participated in a special class that promotes community service. The two-hour credit Service Learning course is designed to enhance the college classroom experience by allowing students to work with non-profit agencies within the community. This semester students worked with the Girl’s Club, Communities In Schools, Titus Regional Hospital Auxiliary, Hospitality House and the Child Development Center. Pictured above are the students who participated this fall: (from left) Holly Paredes of Pittsburg, instructor Hazel Rudd of Daingerfield, Jamie Castaneda of Pittsburg and Carly Bowen of Mount Pleasant. Not pictured were James Houth of Canton and Jennifer Hughes of Mount Pleasant. The Service Learning course is offered each semester and students are encouraged to register now for the fall at www.ntcc.edu.
