Ten Baylor students have been selected to travel to Jamaica over spring break, where they will work in the squatter community of Ferry, at Walker’s Orphanage in Kingston, the Home for the Aged, and primary schools in Kingston.
This year’s group includes Ashley Augustine '14, Max Barringer '15, Allison Chapin '14, Hayden Longley '14, David Rafique '14, Salik Sohani '14, Olivia Taylor '14, Haydon Tucker '15, Adrienne Webb '14 and Elizabeth Webb '15.
This is the 17th year that Baylor students have made the trip to Jamaica led by Baylor’s Community Service Director Joli Anderson.
Her husband, Yogi, also makes the trip. In addition to their service work, each of the 10 students brings 10 school backpacks stuffed with school supplies. The students also raised, primarily by letter solicitation, more than $50,000 for the Jamaica Education Fund, established in 2002 to help children in Jamaica attend school.
