Discover ways to become involved in the community with the Service Fair 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 11, in the Devall Student Center Ballroom. The fair is free and open to all KC students, faculty and staff.

“A part of Kilgore College’s curriculum (and other schools’ curriculums as well) is something called Service Learning, which is a credit-bearing education experience. Service Learning is getting practical experience by volunteering for organizations,” said Candace Heezen, support specialist. “The Service Fair matches up students with organizations that can provide volunteer positions that fit with the students’ programs.”

Some of the participating organizations include Alzheimer’s Association, Boys and Girls Club, Community Connections, the Hospice of East Texas, Mothers Against Drunk Driving, Rusk-Panola Children’s Advocacy Center and Special Health Resources.

For more information, contact Heezen at 903-983-8678 or at servicelearning@kilgore.edu.
