600 Hours of Service
Miller School of Albemarle has a robust service program. Every other Wednesday, students depart school at 12:00 PM and spend the afternoon working with a service group. These groups complete tasks that range from on-campus projects such as organizing the library and cutting firewood to off-campus projects such as helping to organize the Virginia Festival of the Book and assisting at the African American Heritage Center.
Once a year, the entire student body and faculty work together on a campus-wide clean-up project. This year, the clean-up day was orchestrated by Sarah Goodbar. Students worked in task-force groups that focused on a particular section of campus--from faculty apartment basements to old landfills.
In total, the students and faculty completed over 600 hours of service and filled ten dumpsters with junk and trash previously scattered across campus.
