Oct. 21, 2015 - Three students and two faculty members of King’s College recently attended the fifth annual U.S. President’s Interfaith and Community Service National Gathering in Washington, D.C.
The event was established by President Obama in 2011 to support and celebrate the interfaith service initiatives of higher education throughout the country.
Hifza Saeed, a resident of Hazelton, Michael Boris, a resident of Dallas, and Sasha Lopez, a resident of Allentown, with the support of the Theology Department Chairperson Dr. Janis Thompson and the Director of the Shoval Center for Community Engagement Dr. William Bolan learned how different faiths reached the common goal of helping one’s neighbor. They were also provided with a foundation of leadership to bring back to King’s and its local communities.
