ASB Group Awaits Flight at Milwaukee Airport

Spring Break has finally arrived, and 18 UW Oshkosh students and two
advisers anxiously await a flight to Mississippi to help rebuild a
region devasted by Hurricane Katrina in August 2005.

"I want to get to know some new people and help people down in
Biloxi," Molly Ireland said.

The students will be staying at the Seashore United Methodist Assembly
while completing construction projects on homes damaged by Hurricanes.

"I've never installed a window or done flooring before," Kendra Sheck
said. "I'm looking forward to learning how to do that, because it'll
be a challenge," she said.

The Alternative Spring Break Group is excited to help another
community while representing UW Oshkosh.

"I'd like to gain new friendships while doing community service,"
Sarah Paff said, a student trip leader.

  1. Well, I didn't learn how to do windows or floors but even better, I got to do some roofing and learned how to use an air-compressed nail gun. This trip was a great experience!
