Many students at Northwest try their best to give back to their community and to get involved. Community service can have a lot of positive effects on students, such as helping them to develop skills and gain life-changing experiences.

Senior students Andrew Matherly, Emma Taney, and Megan Webb are dedicated to giving back to their communities.  They have displayed their love for the community in a variety of ways.

Senior Andrew Matherly has participated in a countless amount of different service-learning projects. Matherly has restored the Veteran’s Memorial flagpole twice, completed his Eagle Scout project, and has held a charity concert.

Matherly currently holds the school record for raising the highest amount of donations in a charity event, which was the concert he organized.  Through all of these projects, Matherly has learned a lot about himself and his community.

“I learned that the community is very powerful when it comes together to work as a whole,” said Matherly.

Service-learning opportunities are not confined to just the community to which you live in. Many students partake in mission trips in many different places outside of North Carolina.

Senior Emma Taney has done many mission trips in an array of different states, such as Montana, Wyoming, and Colorado. While on these mission trips, Taney and members of her youth group helped repair houses and led a kids’ camp.

“Being able to connect with all of the elementary school kids was amazing,” said Taney. “These trips made me realize that I live a blessed life compared to others.”

Senior Megan Webb has also taken part in numerous mission trips in a lot of different places like Tennessee, Louisiana, New York, and Kentucky. This summer she will be traveling to Thailand to help teach underprivileged kids different subjects.

At her past mission trips, Webb helped build and renovate buildings. Through these trips, Webb was able to improve the lives of others and their community.

“My experiences have pushed me out of my comfort zone and have allowed me to see the world around me in different ways,” said Webb.
