Lighting the Way since 1953  
Degree of Difference Day set for Saturday

By Sean Ditmore/staff writer

On September 29th, 2007 Wayland Baptist University will undertake its second annual Degree of Difference Day.

The major goal of the day is to impact the community in an organized and university-wide manner. Participation in the event will be voluntary and is open to students, faculty and staff members.

The events planned for the date will begin at 8:30 a.m. at which time the volunteers will gather together. At 9 a.m. they will report their work sites and help out until 12:45 p.m. The schedule winds down at 1 p.m. as evaluation forms will be filled out and sack lunches will be given away on site.

Wayland student Millie Longoria enjoyed participating last year and plans on doing the same this year.

“I had a lot of fun last year with the students and with the members of the community,” Longoria said.

The event gives the university a chance to live up to its Christian roots.

Student Chantell Mazone says she believes that is the most exciting part about being involved.

“I’m just excited about helping people because I know that’s what God wants us to do. That has me really looking forward to it,” Mazone said.
