Students Walk-a-Mile in Her Shoes

Almost fifty Penn State Schuylkill students participated in the annual Walk-a-Mile in her Shoes event, held in Pottsville, PA on April 23, where participants donned high heel shoes, and walked in them to raise awareness about sexual violence in the community.

The fundraising event is held by the Sexual Assault Resource and Counseling Center of Schuylkill and Lebanon Counties. Their fundraising goal this year was $10,000. Our students contributed $450 toward that goal, and were presented with a certificate for largest participating group.

Mr. Ron Kelly, instructor in criminal justice, is the faculty adviser for the extra-curricular Criminal Justice Club. Mr. Kelly encourages his students to support local, non-profit organizations by attending community events and fundraisers.
