Cougs in the Community

Get Involved

Why does community service mean so much to our members?

Sarah Newcomer
Assistant Professor
College of Education

“I became interested in doing community service during my first summer after college, when I volunteered to teach English in Guaymas, Mexico. That experience taught me that while there is great joy in helping others, of equal reward is how we ourselves change and grow from such work. In regards to service, I often think of Cesar Chavez’s quote that, ‘Surely the end of all education should be service to others.’ ”

“Cougs in the Community is a great opportunity for WSU Tri-Cities to provide service projects in partnership with our local community. I’m excited to contribute to these volunteer projects and help build a fun, successful program that makes a positive impact on our community.”

“Having lived in the Tri- Cities for almost 30 years, I love opportunities to reach out and help others in our community. I also love being a part of the Cougar family, and, as a recent graduate of WSU Tri- Cities, Cougs in the Community gives me the chance to remain connected to the University, while giving back to my community. What a great opportunity!”
