Area non-profits benefit from MC

students’ class assignment

 

Two Wabash County non-profits will benefit from a lesson in interpersonal communication taught at Manchester College this fall semester.

Students in Professor Marcia L. Benjamin’s Communication class formed teams to create and propose workshops on difficult conversations. The top three presentations received cash prizes that the students donated to the local non-profits.

Our Children, Our Future, a North Manchester program to help families with children succeed, will receive the first- and second-place place prizes. The winning team of junior Katherine Leese of Kokomo and senior Danielle Shepherd of Warsaw proposed a workshop for middle school students on how to reduce everyday anxiety in conversations. The workshop incorporates simple dance steps as metaphors. The team received $100.

Second place went to sophomore Arienne Shambarger of Roann and senior Joe Lamplot of Newport, Ky., who also donated their winnings ($50) to Our Children, Our Future. Third place went to senior Jaci Stevens of Berne and sophomore Neil Rodenbeck of Laotto, who gave their $25 to the Wabash County Red Cross.
