Juniors attain micro-loans for people around the world
Junior Theology students recently completed projects to attain loans for people around the globe. Juniors complete this project in the Solidarity Unit in their Catholic Social Teaching class.Instead of promoting an "us vs. them" mentality, in which an exchange of money simply takes places, our students learn the stories of the individuals they are trying to advocate for and are encouraged to reflect on their own personal connections to the applicants of these micro-loans.Congratulations to the following students on receiving loans for their particular individuals:
Olivia Hawkins, Joee Lawwill, Jeremiah Flowers
Hansen Yang, Oscar Stehlin, Lydia Hoopes
Anna Perry, Rachel Boback, Amanda Miller
Zuri Edmondson, Brandon Tumlin, Chase Dillingham
Raven Reed, Brooke Williams, Kiara Ward
Tori White, Nancy Torres, Mary Kate DeWees and Anneliese Lorsbach
Derek Drago, Victoria Childers, Lauren Middendorf
Countries where the recipients’ loans are from include: Peru, Indonesia, Mexico and Lebanon.
In total, the Class of 2019 donated $800.
