Students

  •   Every year since I was in kindergarten all the way up to 10th grade, it seems as though everyone has a story to tell about going somewhere for the summer except for me.

  • Reading about poverty is something, seeing poverty is something that words can’t come close to explaining. Last summer I went to Matagalpa, Nicaragua.

  • When the word vacation comes to mind, one typically thinks of an allotted time anywhere from a couple of days, to a few weeks.

  • Indianapolis, Indiana, is most commonly known as the Crossroads of America and famous for its Motor Speedway. However, taking a look around, there’s a lot more than just the Indy 500 in Naptown.     If you like a city atmosphere, downtown Indy is a great place to visit. Directly in the center of...
