A group of Penn State York students who are members of the Hispanic Student Association (HAS) and the Human Development and Family Studies (HD FS) Club at Penn State York talked about their service learning experience in Puerto Rico during the summer on Friday, Sept. 21, at noon at University Park.

Alexa Bejaran, business major; Joyce Collazo, letters, arts, and sciences major; Latashia Gilkes, applied psychology major; Isamary Lucena, criminal justice major; Mary Jo Mullenax, HD FS major; Monica E. Reese, business major; and Dalynet Torres, HD FS major; took part in the presentation.  Their summer experience was made possible with assistance from a Student Group Travel Grant awarded by Penn State’s International Programs.   The students were able to participate as volunteers in a summer camp, Campamento Cemir, held at the Universidad del Sagrado Corazan in Santurce, Puerto Rico. 

The group was accompanied to University Park by Sukhdeep Gill, associate professor of HD FS;  Monica Grigera, Latino counselor; and Harriet Darling, senior instructor in HD FS; all from Penn State York.
