Every SSL (student service learning) student is given the task to create a project to better their community. Jordan Swoyer, Anna Smarrelli, Kendall Sheehy, Noah Grenis and Josh Taylor made their project push towards growth of the Learning for Life program by planning a volleyball tournament. Senior Jack DuBro was chosen as the ‘project manager’ and assists throughout each tournament.

Junior Noah Grenis said, “Nothing is better than playing volleyball for a good cause.”

The students created a volleyball tournament, open to all, which is taking place during PREP. Participants chose groups of six people to play alongside them. Each player paid a five-dollar entry fee.

All money went to the Learning for Life program. The students have raised around $400.  

Junior Nicole Escalante said the best part about the first tournament, which occurred in PREP on January 18 was, “beating the boys team because they kept bragging that they would win.”

There will be five tournaments.  All students are invited  to come to the aux or main gym to watch the games if they didn’t get a chance to sign up.
