Everyone had a blast and truly enjoyed themselves on a beautiful day! The Field Day with Jubilee was an amazing experience!”

“It was an awesome day,” women’s basketball senior Nicole Nicholson explained. “The kids really enjoyed themselves. We had a great turnout and had a lot of activities with the day wrapping up with a dance party that they seemed to really enjoy.”
“I am so grateful for this experience” volleyball freshman Lydimar Soto De Los Santos said. “Through little things like this we can change peoples’ lives and maybe make them a little bit easier! I was so proud to be a part of the Field Day and can’t wait for our next community service event.”
