Jamaal’s Service Reflection

On April 27th and 28th, I did community service with the Oliver Scholars Program which I am a member of. For this service, I assisted them with running their annual Interview Weekend at our school, Friends Seminary! I helped to direct both parents and children to their respective interviews alerted the interviewers when the interview had to be stopped and when another child or parent was being sent up to be interviewed. Along with some of my fellow scholars, I helped to make sure everything ran smoothly.

This was related to the quote that Barrack Obama made when he said, “We know that there are some things that we cannot do on our own. We know that there are some things we do better together.” This relates to my service experience because no one individual could have operated this whole interview weekend by himself or herself. Instead, it took a multitude of people, from administrators and interviewers to scholars, to help this whole operation run smoothly. I am glad that I was able to help with interview weekend and hopefully I will be able to help again next year.

  1. Bravo, Jamaal, for your participation in the Oliver Scholars Program’s interview day! It is so important for young people to see other students as the “face” of a program like this. Greeting and welcoming visitors is an invaluable service to any organization.
