SVC TO HOST TAKEOFF MEMORIAL RUN ON APRIL 26

April 15, 2014

On April 26, Saint Vincent College will host the TakeOff Memorial Race in memory of fallen Pennsylvania State Trooper and SVC alum Kenton Iwaniec. All proceeds from the race benefit the Trooper Kenton Iwaniec Memorial Foundation. As Iwaniec drove home from work on March 27, 2008, his car was hit by a vehicle driven by Kristina Quercetti, 42, whose blood-alcohol level was reportedly four times the legal amount. Iwaniec suffered serious injuries and was flown to the hospital where he died two hours later. The Iwaniec family organized the TakeOff memorial race in order to honor his memory, “honor DUI victims, raise awareness about the seriousness of impaired driving and encourage the community to have a positive influence in the reduction of impaired driving,” Iwaniec’s sister, Acacia Houck, said. All profit from the Trooper Kenton Iwaniec Memorial Foundation goes toward the purchase of Preliminary Breath Test Devices (PBTs) for theRead More

STUDENTS TO VOLUNTEER IN KENYA WITH SERVICE LEARNING

April 15, 2014

A group of SVC students will travel to Kenya to volunteer their time at the Hekima Place orphanage from June 9 to June 23. This is the first time that a group from SVC will be traveling to Kenya for a service trip. Pittsburgh resident Kate Fletcher said she founded Hekima Place in 2005 with the hopes of creating a loving home for orphaned Kenyan girls. According to the Hekima Place website, the mission of the home is to “provide a loving, faith-based home for orphaned or vulnerable Kenyan girls while supporting excellence in education and empowerment for their futures.” Jennifer Knoch, a junior history and sociology major, shared her excitement about the service trip. This will be Knoch’s first service trip, which she learned about from signs hanging throughout campus. “I always wanted to do a service trip, I just had to find the right one,” Knoch said.

SUMMER MUSIC FESTIVALS OFFER STRONG LINE-UPS

April 14, 2014

My California dreams of fleeing to the 2014 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Annual Festival were destroyed in early January when the general admission tickets sold out in a record-breaking two hours and thirty-seven minutes. The first weekend of the notorious festival held in Indio, California has come and gone and the second weekend, April 18-20, is just days away. With OutKast reuniting for the first time in almost a decade and other festival favorites like Arcade Fire and Queens of the Stone Age, it’s hard to pass up on this desert music paradise. Luckily, there are plenty of June music and arts festivals that are closer to the East Coast and within the meager funds of a jobless graduating senior like me (and I’m sure I’m not alone).   The Dollar Bank Three Rivers Arts Festival When: June 6-15 Where: Downtown Pittsburgh Admission: FREE Thanks to the Pittsburgh CulturalRead More
