per se," Richardson said, "but they create an atmosphere where habits are encouraged, where valuable experience and the tools for public service are provided. "[fyou stop on a highway and help a turtle to cross while your children watch from the back seat," said Richardson, "they'll grow up and do the same, defining the world in the same way you did. And if they decide to help the giant turtles in the South Pacific instead of the ones in front of their house or in the road, you're going to enthusiastically applaud that. So if we pattern the University programs and the staff to show leadership, the students will want leadership, too."
Emilie McGlone started Heels on Wheels to get food out of the dumpsters and into homeless shelters.
Students such as Kate Rhodes agree
with Richardson but contend that too
few students choose to be among those
faces of activism.
Rhodes has worked on projects with
SURGE, SEAC, Students for Economic
Justice and through outside community
groups to help improve conditions for the
migrant farm workers in North Carolina.
A native of Charlotte, Rhodes contends
that the number of active students on
can1pus is small-so small, in fact, that
these individuals know the faces they're
going to see at rallies and functions before
they even get there.
