Local dignitaries, College administrators, faculty, staff, students, community partners, elementary students, and more gathered Friday to celebrate Landis Day, marking the merger of the College’s Landis Community Outreach Center and Center for Community Engagement.
Landis now will focus on developing active citizens and student leaders in addition to community-based learning and research.
Many honored guests spoke at the event.
Fifth-grade students from Cheston, March, and Paxinosa schools in Easton partnered with Lafayette students to assemble care packages for first-time, low-income mothers who are part of St. Luke’s Nurse Family Partnership.
Then all helped break tile for what will become a framed mosaic, a collaborative art piece that symbolizes the strong connections among the College, school district, and community through Landis projects.
