Lycoming College students help others on Spring Break

Early in 2007, Lycoming College students paid to go to the Gulf Coast during spring break to help the college chapter of Habitat for Humanity rebuild homes destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. The following note was sent to the students by an appreciative flight attendant.
I'm a flight attendant for Southwest Airlines and just a short time ago a group of about 45 young students from Lycoming College were on my flight returning from their spring break on the Gulf Coast where they gave of their time and efforts to help in rebuilding from the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina. I was moved enough by their unselfishness to make an announcement on the plane intercom to recognize this but my emotions got the best of me and I could not finish. I'm a Gulf Coast resident of Slidell Louisiana and lost everything I had when 3 feet of water swept through the house my wife and I had occupied for the last 10 years. If I could finish my announcement right now I'd like to thank them all on behalf of not only my wife and myself but all the residents of the Gulf Coast area who are still trying to put their lives back together again. It was a pleasure to have them all on board that day.
