Mayor Wharton will be joined by several student leaders this Sunday when he issues his upcoming student service challenge to engage students in thoughtful service.
The One Memphis Campus Connection event will be especially for students from University of Memphis, Rhodes College, Christian Brothers University, Southwestern Tennessee State Community College, and LeMoyne-Owen College.
Organizers hope to attract as many students as possible, especially those already involved in service on their campuses. Students will divide up into three One Memphis focus areas: cleaning and greening, youth wellness, and serving our seniors. They will then brainstorm creative ideas with one another to design their own service projects.
Short project proposals will be drafted by teams of students and sent to Mayor Wharton for his consideration. The Mayor will select the promising service project ideas to be executed throughout the spring.
