Six students spent more than a week (June 16-24) at the Wind River Native American Reservation in Riverton, Wyoming. They traveled west to work with Sr. Teresa Frawley, a Franciscan sister, on various projects to improve some churches in the area.  The students landscaped, painted, and performed various jobs involving classroom preparation for the children of the reservation. 


The students who devoted a week of their summer vacation to community service were Jillian DeFina, Stephen Moran, Amanda Saunders, Julia M. Love, Angela Pesce, and Melissa Dwyer.

The group traveled with Melissa Hickey, director of Campus Ministry, and Patrick McKenzie, the campus minister.


“During our time there, we visited various cultural events with the Arapahoe and Shoshone people, and also worked for one day in a Head Start center in Fort Washakie, Wyoming,” said Hickey. When they had free time, the students visited the Sinks Canyon Park, Yellowstone National Park and the Grand Teton Range.
