MWCC Participates in 9th Annual Alternative Spring Break

Alternative Spring Break 2016 MWCCA group of MWCC students and staff members spent part of spring break as home builders with Habitat for Humanity of North Central Massachusetts to benefit a family in Ayer.

The day-long volunteer effort on March 16 marked MWCC’s 9th annual Alternative Spring Break, organized by the office of Student Life and the Center for Civic Learning and Community Engagement.

The service project provides an amazing opportunity for students to learn new skills while giving back to others, said Associate Dean of Students Greg Clement, who initiated the college’s Alternative Spring Break in 2008.

In addition to Clement, Shelley Errington Nicholson, Director of the Center for Civic Learning and Community Engagement, and Sarah Savoie, Student Services clerk and certifying official participated, along with students  Jana Murphy, Priscilla DePaula, Kate Zebierek and Kevin Figueroa.
