A “learning partner” teaches some “Be the Change” lessons

One of my colleagues, Lisa Ha, a marketing program coordinator, has assumed a new role for the next week or so. Lisa is a “learning partner” for a group of 11 undergraduates on a JMU Alternative Spring Break trip. The group is working on a Native American reservation in Pine Ridge, South Dakota, one of the “poorest area in the United States.”

Lisa is keeping a blog, and she’s invited us all to share her experience (the group is without Internet access during the trip, beginning Saturday, March 7, so blog entries will be posted one week after they are written. Catch the Monday, March 9th post on Saturday, March 16th, etc.) I’ve already found her insight into the challenge of service intriguing…thanks, Lisa, for sharing. Godspeed.
