April 11, 2017 – On March 30, more than 700 students, faculty, and staff from Bryan College rolled up their sleeves and set out to help make a difference in the Dayton community and surrounding areas.
In total, there were 46 project sites that ranged in skills from painting and picking up trash to playing with children and landscaping. Highlights of this year’s projects included work at the First Christian Community Church, Dayton Library, Dayton City School, Life Care Center of Dayton, and many others. Several projects were also completed in nearby Spring City and Athens, Tenn., at businesses and residential homes.
“We want to make a difference just by bonding with the kids and being good role models. We also want to promote healthy habits for them in the future,” said Helen Cannon, a student who worked with children at the Dayton City School field day.
This annual event serves as a meaningful way for students, faculty, and staff to live out Bryan College’s mission to make a difference in today’s world. Service Day also provides a way for Bryan to build and maintain relationships with the local community.
“I love Service Day every year, because it gives us a chance to connect with where we live, what we’re about as a College, and we also always meet great people. We’re so thankful to be able to do this.”
