Goodwell, Okla. -Oklahoma Panhandle State University maintains a high level of involvement in the communities within the school’s service area. Just one of the ways is through the OPSU Community Service Learning program.

Students in Community Service Learning work for not-for-profit organizations and experience how such organizations function on a daily basis as well as make vital contributions to those organizations.

One participant is Jem Hernandez, a Guymon High School graduate and current OPSU student majoring in Communications. This semester, Hernandez is working with the Guymon Chamber of Commerce and assists the Executive Director, Consuelo Luera, in several areas.

“Community Service Learning is a great way for the kids to learn as they do,” Luera said.

Hernandez assists in the management of the day-to-day business at the Chamber and spends a great deal of her time on both administrative tasks and committee work.

Organizations interested in Community Service Learning may contact Scott Puryear at 580-349-1340.
