Alumni serve as Lasallian Volunteers

Stories

Chris Lackey ’18, Regina Bettag ’18, Liam Wintroath ’17, Sheyenne Bauer ’18, and Ben Peters ’18 are serving as Lasallian Volunteers.

Five recent Saint Mary’s graduates are serving as Lasallian Volunteers for the 2018-19 school year. Four 2018 graduates are new additions to the program: Regina Bettag, who is volunteering at De La Salle Blackfeet School in Browning, Mont.; Ben Peters, who is volunteering at San Miguel School in Washington, D.C.; Chris Lackey, who is volunteering at LaSalle School in Albany, N.Y.; and Sheyenne Bauer, who is volunteering at De La Salle at Blessed Sacrament in Memphis, Tenn. Liam Wintroath ’17 is beginning his second year at San Miguel School in Chicago, Ill.

These volunteers completed the Kitson Institute at Lewis University this summer, which prepared them for the year ahead by teaching them about the Lasallian charism, cultural diversity, and how to work in a classroom setting. The Lasallian Volunteers program provides up to two years of experience with a job-related focus and offers volunteers opportunities for growth in professionalism, faith, and more. Volunteers live in community with De La Salle Christian Brothers, work to strengthen their commitment to Catholic Social Teaching and issues of justice, and are encouraged to discern their vocation in life while being aware of the ways in which God might be calling them to greater service while deepening their spiritual life.
