Service

  • Spring 2011-present. President, Filipino American Association of Northwestern Pennsylvania
  • Spring 2011-present. Member, Gannon University Faculty Senate
  • Spring 2011. Organizer, Books for the Prisoners Project. I organized the Criminal Justice Service Learning class to collect and donate books to the Erie County Prison. This project collected 500 books for the Erie County Prison library. The objective of the project is to encourage the culture of reading among inmates and break the barriers and stigma between inmates and the community.
  • Spring 2011. Organizer, Story Book Project. I organized the Criminal Justice Service Learning class to collect books for the children of the Family Center in Erie Pennsylvania. Some students assisted parents in video recording their reading of a story for their children. The Family Center then sent the children’s books and videos to the children of parents who do not have legal custody of their children. The objective of the project is to reconnect children and parents through reading of children’s books.
