Brad Bennett and Kirsten Midgley, both of Canfield, recently returned from a monthlong service learning trip to Lesotho, Africa. Dr. Scott Rosenberg, African Studies professor at Wittenberg University led the group of 38 students. While in Lesotho, the students learned about the language and culture of the Basotho people. In addition, they performed many community service projects, including building chicken coops and piggeries, painting classrooms, building cabinets, planting gardens and building playgrounds. Bennett is a junior business management major at Wittenberg University and will be studying in London, England, for the fall semester. Midgely is a 2011 graduate of Wittenberg and will be attending medical school at Georgetown University in the fall.
