Summer volunteers play key role in campus improvements

Volunteers will handle a range of campus improvement projects at Baptist Bible College & Seminary this summer, combining hands-on help with an inexpensive family vacation.

Volunteer Weeks will be June 20-26 and July 11-17. Workers help in several areas of need in campus facilities. Some jobs involve specialized skills while others just require a willing spirit.

The Maintenance Department benefits from these dedicated workers as they prepare the campus for the upcoming school year.

Projects for this summer include remodeling Shaffer Hall, construction of a retaining wall at Commons Hall, new siding on Nordling Hall, as well as cleaning, painting, and related tasks. This year also features the start of construction work for the $4.5 million Kempton Athletic Center.
