National Service Event

Volunteerism was once again in the spotlight at Vol State last week as mayors from across Sumner County gathered to salute community service. The Mayor and County Recognition Day for National Service event acknowledged the importance of service work in the community, and the contributions of Vol State students, faculty and staff in that effort. The event recognized Vol State Service Learning student projects, which are tied to specific classwork. 

Mayors from all 50 states and the District of Columbia, Guam and Puerto Rico participated in the national event. It’s estimated that more than 6,300 people, of all ages and backgrounds, are helping to meet local needs, strengthen communities, and increase civic engagement through national service in Tennessee.
