A Lasting Impact
The Academic Service Learning Semester trips often leave a huge imprint on both the students who go on the trips and the impoverished areas where they stay. It’s a classic win-win. Sometimes, though, the wins go even further and the imprint the students leave is on the hearts of others. At least that’s the case with two Xavier students who went on the trip to Nicaragua last spring. John Fisk and Laren Grove made such an impact on the host family they stayed with, the family named them godparents of their newborn baby, Valentina. Both Fisk and Grove are flying back to Nicarauga in March to be with their godchild for her christening.
