Education students adopt New Orleans school

    The Lycoming College Student-Pennsylvania State Education Association (S-PSEA) adopted St. Agnes Parochial School in Jefferson Parish, La., for its annual school supply drive.

    The Lycoming S-PSEA's relationship with St. Agnes began in 2006 following the devastation caused by hurricane Katrina. Students wanted to work with a school affected by the disaster, and a partnership was arranged through the efforts of Barb Horn, education department faculty secretary, and a New Orleans-based friend and former College employee, Nancy Walker, who identified St. Agnes and coordinated the drive with the school's principal, Bridget Sinibaldi.
