Students Map Cumberland Elementary School
Since 2013, Health and Physical Education majors and members of the Phi Epsilon Kappa (Honor fraternity) have partnered with the Farmville Sherwin Williams store to paint world and US maps at area schools. The groups have completed ten maps at seven schools throughout five area counties. Cumberland Elementary School was the latest recipient of the maps. Painters for the Cumberland maps were Health and Physical Education majors and the project was completed in two afternoons. Dr. Vonnie Colvin is the faculty advisor. To enjoy more photos, click here.

Social Work Students Connect
On October 30, social work students connected with Prince Edward county high school students as part of their SOWK 430 course, Methods: Practice III Communities and Organizations. Senior social work students contacted Prince Edward high school administrators and teachers to arrange a campus visit for 45 seniors in the College-Bound program. Prior to their visit, the social work team designed a comprehensive program that showcased Longwood University and gave practical information to the high school students.
