Adventures in Education Excellence: Scholarships, Thailand and Elephants - Oh my! | Bright Light Volunteers
Stacie Freeman, Professor of Sociology at Bethel University and Bright Light Volunteers’ Co-Executive Director, just returned from Chiang Mai after serving as a leader for a group of Chico, CA high school students during an adventure in global service learning in Thailand. She couldn't be happier. During the three week program, Freeman had ample opportunity to really get to know each participant. She shares, “Sometimes I worry about the future, but groups like this one restore my faith. These young people are destined for big things and the world will be brighter as a result. I’m thankful that their paths and mine crossed during this amazing program.”
