Two NSU interns completed their last day of their service learning project at BOM before the Thanksgiving Holiday. BOM partnered with NSU’s Office of Service-Learning and allowed students to shadow different departments of BOM. Earlier this semester, two students interviewed BOM employees, Gretchen Dauzat, Dewayne Chelette, and Micah Foshee. After interviewing several businesses, BOTH interns chose BOM!
Northwestern State University is a responsive, student-oriented institution that is committed to the creation, dissemination, and acquisition of knowledge through teaching, research, and service. The University’s Office of Service-Learning assists the University with meeting one of its primary goals: “To promote economic development, community service, and an improved quality of life in the region”.
Through service-learning projects, students use theory and skills learned in the classroom to solve ‘real-life’ problems. The Office serves as a point of contact where the community and university can join together to identify needs and share resources.
A HUGE thank you to Stephanie Lambert, Jenny Crump, Kessler Barnes, Margaret Davison, Jacob Murchison, Luke Rasberry, Keith Miller, Logan Lambert and Mark Lipa for allowing this students to shadow you all this past semester!
