There is a village just outside of Jérémie, Haiti the locals call Premiere Source. It's a small jungle town 1,400 miles and two flights from Montgomery, West Virginia, and it's where WVU Tech civil engineering student Nathan McNeil called home for two months this summer.
Nathan traveled to the Caribbean nation as part of a missionary program run by the Gateway Christian Church in Saint Albans, West Virginia. The program sends volunteers to Haiti every few months where they maintain a church and a school that services 150 children sponsored by U.S. families. Some volunteers also provide medical services in clinics around Jérémie.
ROCHESTER HILLS, Mich.—On Tuesday, August 26th the Rochester College golf team participated in the A.L.S. Ice Bucket Challenge.
The Ice Bucket Challenge involves people dousing ice water on themselves while videotaping the experience. Participants then post the video on social media challenging others to do the same. People can accept the challenge or make a donation to an ALS charity of their choice, or in some cases do both.
