CYPRESS ACADEMY SERVICE PROJECT
“Tulane University’s Naval ROTC unit spent their Saturday morning on October 21st volunteering at Cypress Academy. We spent the majority of our time outside, transforming the ground surrounding the school by removing excess shrubbery and turning over the mulch on the playground, as well as raking and tidying up the yard.
The experience emphasized service before self, the core values of both Tulane and NROTC, and the importance of community awareness and involvement. Just a few people can make a huge impact when they dedicate just a portion of their time to making a difference in the lives of others. Not only is volunteering beneficial for the community, but it is also good for individual development.
Tulane NROTC and its midshipmen look forward to more projects such as this in the future.”
