More local students succeeding in higher education...

WORCESTER, MA - The Assumption College Office of Student Activities has announced those students who are currently leading one of the College's many clubs and organizations for the 2019-20 academic year. Local students include:

Mary Rezendes of South Yarmouth (02664) is currently serving as co-president of National Student Speech Hearing Language Hearing Association (NSSLHA) for the 2019-20 academic year. NSSLHA offers students opportunities to explore an interest in communications sciences disorders.

Bryce Thomas of East Sandwich (02537) is currently serving as president of The Merely Players for the 2019-20 academic year. Merely Players is a student-run theater group that produces and performs one show per semester in the College's state-of-the-art Jeanne Y. Curtis Performance Hall.

Gertude Cox of South Wellfleet (02661) is currently serving as co-president of Women's Studies Club for the 2019-20 academic year. Because Assumption is a community of welcoming individuals who seek to gain a better understanding of one another, members of the Women's Studies Club seek to educate students on the value of gender equality and how it is contextualized in modern society.

"At Assumption, students are encouraged to engage in one of over 60 groups and organizations on campus that serve an array of students' interest such as a student newspaper, environmental sustainability, event planning, and many more," said Kaitlin Bevins, director of student activities and leadership development. "Participation in one or more of the clubs and organizations not only broadens students' social circles, but invites personal growth, development of leadership skills, and even opportunities to hone their skills or discover a vocation. These co-curricular opportunities complement students' classroom work where they can apply skills learned in the classroom to enhance a club or organization."

At Assumption, learning happens inside and outside the classroom, in the local community, and beyond. Through its nearly 60 student-run clubs and organizations-ranging in interest from academic and media to community service and athletics-students are provided the opportunity to network with professionals and apply classroom knowledge to projects that help better both the campus and Worcester communities.
