Service project featured in Mississippi newspaper

Monday, March 22, 2010

The Northwestern service team that assisted Mendenhall Ministries in Mississippi over spring break made the front page of the local newspaper when they installed what is believed to be the first working solar panel in Simpson County. The ministry hopes to install panels like that on homes of those in need of assistance with their utility bills.

Social work professor Mark De Ruyter and student Seth Lembke learned how to make the panels in West Virginia over Christmas break.
