Students from Kaskaskia College’s Associate Degree Nursing
program recently volunteered their time to prepare patient rooms at the new St.
Joseph’s Hospital in Highland, IL.
Although Highland is outside of the Kaskaskia College
district, the KC Nursing program was happy to offer the volunteerism
opportunity to its students, who responded with enthusiasm. Service to others is a standard tenet of
Kaskaskia College’s philosophy, as is evidenced by the numerous community
oriented events for which students and staff volunteer.
At St. Joseph’s, the students assisted hospital staff in
making beds, stocking supplies in patient rooms, and last minute cleanup in
preparation for the hospital’s move to its new location.
Participating students were Tiffany Wickman, Greenville;
Emily Rakers, Pocahontas; Rachel Litteken, Vandalia; Katie Ledbetter, Vandalia;
Samantha Osborne, Highland; Kayla Weiss, Highland
