At the Swarthmore College and Community Store, a buy-one, give-one sale continues through the weekend. For each school supply item bought and donated there, the store will contribute an identical item, all to benefit local after-school tutoring for needy children. Swarthmore College students will collect the supplies, and distribute them Monday as part of the Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service. Helping with the drive from the College are (left to right) Joyce Tompkins, religious and spiritual life adviser, students Abha Lal and Cameron Wiley, and Dion Lewis, director of the Black Cultural Center.
These local students were named to the fall semester Dean’s List at their respective colleges:
Nicholas Dudek of Wallingford and Timothy McCullough of Rose Valley at York College of Pennsylvania.
Jamie Kenney of Wallingford at Bucknell University.
Caleb Baukman of Wallingford and Rachel Zuppo of Rutledge at Kutztown University.
