Volunteer Tutoring @ Natchez High School

Over this past year, many students such as myself, and even professionals have felt the many effects as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. Knowing this, I have made it my duty to do what I possibly could to ease the burden felt by students to make sure they could continue to excel in their…

Service…Online? :)

Well, here we are again. Another remote semester has been completed for The University of Southern Mississippi students and I could not be happier about it. This last year of remote learning has been full of trials and tribulations, but I feel as if it has shown a lot of the resilience we share as…

Volunteering at the Public Library

Since my high school days, I have loved to educate individuals with the knowledge I am blessed to have. During the pandemic, it can be frustrating to try and volunteer but I am thankful there was a way. Over this semester, I have tutored 5 children ranging from 1st-5th grade. Each child had their own…

Volunteering as a Student Nurse

Each Thursday for a hour and a half from August to November, I have had the pleasure of working with the office staff, Mrs. Vickie and Ms. Lori.…

Every Name Counts

Life is so unexpected. An extended Spring Break ultimately became this months-long quarantine that put a halt in my freshman year. The stress of virtual classes and maintaining a somewhat β€œnew-normal” was now all I could think about. When it came to service, my options we are very limited due to obvious reasons regarding the…

On Wednesdays, We Wear SPAS Volunteer Shirts

MEOW! My name is Thumbelina. I am a female tabby cat that LOVES to vocalize my agitation that people do not give me enough attention. Before my adoption into my forever home, my litter box resided at Southern Pines Animal Shelter. In addition to the many people who came to experience my presence, I remember…
