Campus & Community
With a desire to engage Wittenberg students in Springfield, student interns from the Celebrate Springfield summer project initiated and coordinated the first-ever “Passport to Springfield” event Aug. 27. The event brought together cultural and arts organizations, local retail establishments, entertainment venues, area restaurants and churches, as well as a variety of other community vendors.
“As we continue to reflect on our recent summer internship in Springfield, we still find ourselves amazed by the wonderful assets of this city,” noted Ashley Manson ’09, Aubrey Herbst ’09, Benjamin Adams ’08 and Brian Schubert ’09 in their letter to the community. “We now want to ensure that our fellow students know each and every asset as well.”
More than 600 people attended the event with one vendor calling it the “best advertising opportunity she’s had since she opened.”
