This summer Liza Morse (F09) headed to Appalachia to work with the Appalachia Service Project.  Liza sent out letters in the spring asking for support for her trip; Liza’s group needed to raise $10,000 in order to go and to buy all the supplies they would need.

According to Liza’s mom:

“Thanks to the help of the Fall 09 Island School community, she raised more money than anyone in her group….AND, she seemed to be well prepared for doing difficult work outside in the extreme heat with lots of bugs around.  Every morning she ran with several of the volunteers before they all went off to their various work sites. It reminded her of Island School morning runs except it was NOT flat and Maxey wasn’t there egging them on.”

Great job, Liza!
