Seniors Rewarded for Mentoring Local Youth

Bob Wernet, Luke Walker, and Sean Hendon mentored students at Albion's Harrington Elementary School.The highlight of the week for many children at Albion's Harrington Elementary School is the one-hour visit by their mentor, who happens to be a student from Albion College. Three senior E&M students who are also members of the men's basketball program – Bob Wernet, Luke Walker, and Sean Hendon – were among 25 Albion students who recently received Michigan Campus Compact Heart and Soul awards for their dedication to community service. They were also among the recipients of the Jessie Longhurst Rotary Service Award.
