Jeanette Chomic Represents Sherman at CollegeTown CSI
Sherman student Jeanette Chomic shares her experience with the CSI project:
To be completely honest, I went into this CSI event kicking and screaming. It was a Saturday after all, and the only place I really wanted to be on Saturday at 9 a.m. was under my covers and sleeping. After about three days of telling another student, David Croxford, that he was crazy if he thought I would sign up, I finally decided that it might be worth sacrificing a few hours of my Saturday if it meant that David would finally quit encouraging me to participate. Let me tell you, I am so happy that he convinced me to go!
When I arrived at "the Hangar" on Saturday morning, I was fed a great breakfast and asked to pick one of around 20 service projects to participate in for the day. It was a bit of a mad house considering the large number of students milling around the place and I couldn’t help but be proud of Spartanburg’s colleges for the willingness of its students to help their community. I ended up settling on a project to install a learning trail in a local Spartanburg park, as did fellow Shermie, Holly Clarke.
In short, the day was a blast! We spent it installing educational signs as well as painting corresponding pictures and designs on the sidewalk encircling the play area. The purpose of our project was to encourage parents to play constructively with their children while facilitating learning. Not only did it feel good to know that we may have improved someone’s childhood experience, but Holly and I benefited further from the experience. We met some great students from other schools and had the opportunity to talk chiropractic as well as answer many questions about what Sherman is, admissions requirements, and health center pricing. What a great opportunity for us to get out into the community and communicate what we are all so passionate about!
