    Courtney's Bio:
    I'm an Elementary Education major at CSS. I also plan to minor in Spanish. Having done PSEO, I came to CSS with more than 60 credits. I'm part of Volunteers Involved Through Action (VITA), Students Today Leaders Forever (STLF), and other clubs! Dance has been part of my life for 10 years, and now I'm trying to fit it into my schedule again. I love spending time watching Supernatural and Once Upon a Time, and reading Harry Potter and other great books. I live in a suite with 3 other girls, and we are always finding something fun to do around campus!

Arkansas Part 2!

Our second day in Arkansas was spent in El Dorado, pronounced el dah-ray-do, not what the city of gold or my minor in Spanish would suggest. The locals made sure that no one pronounced it wrong and if you did, you never stopped hearing about it! El Dorado was a “small town” of about 26,000 (my hometown only has 8,000). The second we got there, we stopped at Wal-Mart! You never would believe all the things peoole need to buy after being on a bus for a few days. For dinner, we had delicious southern cooking… What great Chinese food. They actually had fried okra, so you could definitely tell we were in the south anyway. The next morning our group split into different areas of service. Some went to the Salvation Army, some went to a school, and I went to a hospice center. We learned that some medicare funded homes are required to have a certain ratio of volunteer hours to employee hours, so what we did there aided the hospice in surviving in general! That was awesome to know that we impacted them so much. I baked cookies there while some people shredded files or gardened. Afterward, we stopped at the Salvation Army thrift store, and can I just say that STLF loves thrifting? I found an 80s velvour purple cheetah  blazer and matching dress. I totally bought it. From there, we were off to Dallas!
