Eagerness. Excitement. Enthusiasm. Exhaustion. These are the three things I associate with summer students. This is the third year that we have had summer students at Oasis. This year we have seven eager recruits. One of them has been here all three summers and two more have been here for two summers. This summer they are working hard helping children’s programs in the community, gathering stories from volunteers and community members, organizing an art fair, staffing a table during a local street festival, and filling in the gaps for volunteers on summer break. The picture accompanying this posting shows our students awaiting the next group of day camp students learning about food insecurity at their own level. The Four E’s are contagious.
