College Volunteers

An AP article from the Merc today said that college students are volunteering in ever increasing numbers - up more than 20 percent from 2002 to 2005. That is great news if you ask me. I think that volunteering is one of the best things you can do, not only to help your community, but also to further your own education and help yourself. I am not as involved now as I have been in the past, but my best memories of high school come from the service activities I was involved in. I was able to go to Denver, meet Erin Brockovich and was on the front of the local section of the newspaper and was on multiple TV news shows. It was lots of fun, and I learned a lot about my community. Get involved, go volunteer!
