continued Community service is an important part of the school’s mission and students are required to do community service before reaching graduation.
“Service here is also a component of the education,” said Gelting. “It is about analyzing and addressing the problems they see and becoming educated about them. Those who can analyze problems and think about them can also be leaders for creating change.”
