On January 16, to mark Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the Pennsylvania Mountain Service Corps gave a day of service to HHCS.
The PMSC is the local arm of AmeriCorps, which is akin to a domestic Peace Corps. Members serve in the areas of education, the environment, and social services. Here at HHCS, Mrs. Kara Zufall is a full-time corpsmember working in kindergarten.
On January 16, a dozen other members of the PMSC joined Mrs. Zufall in a day of service here at HHCS. The thirteen spent the day scraping and painting student lockers.
“PMSC AmeriCorps had a great time serving at HOPE for Hyndman as part of a series of projects to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King,” said PMSC regional coordinator Ms. Lee Kring. “Many hands lighten the load, and we were glad to lend our hands.”
“It was a great day,” added PMSC program director Mrs. Carol Overly. Mrs. Overly was also wielding a paint brush, and she pointed out that Dr. King once said, “Everyone can be great because everyone can serve.”
Here at HHCS, we are deeply grateful for the assistance of the Pennsylvania Mountain Service Corps and AmeriCorps.
“The maintenance department, especially, would like to thank AmeriCorps,” said custodian Mr. Juan Ryan. “They did all their own cleanup too. They did a great job.”
