Bryan students will spend break providing disaster relief

October 3, 2018

October 3, 2018 – Fall Break is quickly approaching, and once again some Bryan students will spend their break serving others. The flooding that resulted from hurricane Florence has significantly impacted many areas along the Atlantic coast, especially in North Carolina. A group of students will be traveling to New Bern, N.C. to assist in flood recovery and disaster relief efforts. The group will leave Dayton, Tenn. on Oct. 13 and return on Oct. 20.

In preparation for the trip, representatives from the Tennessee Baptist Disaster Relief team will provide flood recovery training. Training will take place on Oct. 7 and will be free for students.  Faculty and staff of the college are also welcome to attend training for a small fee. Those who complete training will be certified in disaster relief with the Tennessee Baptist Disaster Relief organization for three years.  This certification will provide recipients the opportunity to help in future crises.

Students can sign-up for the training through Oct. 6. Sign-ups for the disaster relief trip are available through Oct. 12. Students who want to sign up for the training and trip should contact Michaela Thomas, short term missions coordinator, at mthomas9328@bryan.edu or Donald Buttram at dbuttram7706@bryan.edu.
