Marty's Message

Last weekend, I had the pleasure of shuttling students from UW-Stevens Point to the Noel Hangar and back so they could help Clinical Laboratory Science Senior Lecturer Michelle Shulfer pack meals for hungry families around the world.

As part of an organization called Feed My Starving Children, Michelle and Sigma Mu Tau organized over 500 volunteers, many of them UWSP students, who packed 116,640 meals–enough to feed 319 children for an entire year.

Our students measured, vacuum sealed and packed meals compromised of various grains, rice and protein powders that when mixed with hot water supply thousands of quick, nutritious, ready to eat meals. Although nothing like we would consider a meal (we each received a cup to taste), we could appreciate their importance.

Michelle–like many faculty and staff–involves students in worthwhile causes as close to us as our local communities and as far away as across the world. Not only do these volunteer activities make a difference, they also reinforce many of the skills our students learn in the classroom–teamwork, professionalism and empathy to name a few.
