Mount Vernon Nazarene University - Giving back to the Community

by Sam Miller

Mount Vernon Nazarene University
Giving back to the Community

Mount Vernon Nazarene UniversityStudents at Mount Vernon Nazarene University are dedicated to helping their community.

Mount Vernon is lucky to have 2,000 plus students who are actively participating in local homeless shelters, outreach programs, and mentoring activities. The university’s mission promotes respect for others, positive influence and a commitment to giving. These Christian values gave rise to these great locally beneficial programs

“Friendsheep” where students are paired with residents of a nursing home. They read, listen, and play with elders to brighten their day.

“One Way” is a great program that promotes student talents in music, drama, and story-telling. The students perform around the community.

“Mandate” servers with urban ministries to raise awareness of urban issues. Small groups travel to inner-cities on the weekends to help with different organizations.

“Pumzika” raises awareness of homelessness by working with a variety of social service organizations and forming relationships with guests of Mount Vernon’s homeless shelter, “The Sanctuary”.

“Transition Mission” pairs students with developmentally delayed high school students to interact with.

Lastly, “Bookworms” trains college students by the Education Department to go to Columbia Elementary School to help kids learn how to read.

There are many more great opportunities, and Mount Vernon Nazarene University is just another reason why Mount Vernon is such a special town. The community is supported by each other, with many opportunities for involvement and growth.

Winter Snow Storm Hits Knox County Ohio

by Sam Miller

Knox County Ohio residents got a big surprise this past weekend when 16 inches of snow fell within a 24 hour period.  This was the largest single day snow storm for Ohio that was recorded in more than 50 years.  On Friday March 7th the county was declared a level 2 snow emergency which means motorists were advised to say home.  On March 8th they raised the snow emergency to a level 3 which means only emergency vehilces are allowed to be on the roads.  When I woke up Sunday morning the roads were amazingly clean and it was very obvious that the city, the townships and the county had all worked around the clock and their efforts paid off in a big way.  Mount Vernon Schools were open Monday morning and the drive to work was smooth with no issues.   Traveling the roads in Mount Vernon, Fredericktown, Howard, Gambier, Centerburg and Apple Valley should be back to business as usual and in record time.
