Participates in leadership program

Ryland Lawton, of Port Allegany, learned the value of helping others this summer by participating in Susquehanna University SPLASH (Students Promoting Leadership, Awareness and Service through Humanitarian efforts). This opportunity was coordinated by the David ‘69 and Sharon Johnson Center for Civic Engagement. Lawton is a student in SU’s International Studies program and is part of the Class of 2023. Students took part in service-learning activities designed to teach them about the realities of poverty and to provide strategies for tackling humanitarian issues. They spent time throughout SU’s campus and the Selinsgrove area before traveling to other parts of PA where they volunteered with service organizations such as the Hand Up Foundation in Milton, the Haven Ministry Center in Sunbury, and the Central PA Foodbank in Harrisburg.
