Students present community service grant to Breathe Coffee House

HAYS, Kan. – A group of Fort Hays State University students, led by Dr. Seth Kastle, assistant professor of leadership studies, recently presented a Heartland Community Foundation grant to Breathe Coffee House, Hays.

The grant, written by students of Fieldwork in Leadership Studies, will assist Breathe in engaging community members in opportunities to support those in need. It will contribute to the development of an app that will connect people looking to volunteer with available volunteer opportunities.

Each semester, multiple leadership project teams from Fieldwork in Leadership Studies create new and innovative ways to engage in surrounding communities.

“Each team creates social change projects that afford the students the opportunity to actually ‘do’ leadership in an experiential learning environment,” said Kastle. “As a department, we are incredibly proud of our students.”

Students who participated in the project are listed alphabetically.
    Luke Cox, Colby junior, is majoring in organizational leadership.
    Quanyi “Andrew” Hu, senior, is majoring in organizational leadership.
    Hadley Tharp, Shawnee, is majoring in criminal justice.
    Brady Walker, Larned senior, is majoring in organizational leadership.
