Christchurch students & teachers headed to Puerto Rico to aid hurricane victims

Students in Dr. Chris Little’s Honors Spanish Seminar, along with six faculty members, are off to Puerto Rico for a week to help with Hurricane Maria cleanup efforts.

The group will clear rubble and complete basic home repairs. They are also taking equipment—power washers, batteries, gloves, coping saws, roller covers and a compact worksite radio—to leave with All Hands Volunteers, a U.S.-based non-profit disaster relief organization. The students will also work closely with Para la Naturaleza, a nonprofit unit of the Conservation Trust of Puerto Rico.

Dr. Little and his students raised all the money to cover the costs of the trip as well as the supplies on the All Hands wish list.

Faculty members going are Dr. Chris Little (Foreign Language Dept. Chair), Aaron Alter (Director of Global Education), Meghan McNeill (Director of Learning Skills Program), Mark Viser (Spanish Instructor), and Haley Wilbanks (Science Instructor).

Students traveling are Malaya Doris (East Orange, N.J.), Jack Newton (Williamsburg), Britney Peart (East Orange, N.J.), B. Pressley (Beaverdam), Carson Rozell (Lancaster), Avery Shivers (White Stone), Nayyir Strasner (Springfield Gardens, N.Y.) and Katie Villanueva (Walkerton).

Dr. Gregg Shivers, a Christchurch parent, will also accompany the group.
