Ten St. Norbert College students will visit Memphis, Tenn. from Saturday, Jan. 9 to Saturday, Jan. 16, as part of the TRIPS alternative break service program. While there, the participants will volunteer at a children's hospital and spend time with the children to give their parents a break. They will also assist at sites that provide lodging to families whose children are in treatment at the hospital.

Participants in the Memphis, Tenn. trip are listed below.

Trip Leaders: Whitney Oren (Edgerton, Wis.), Olivia Koehn (West Bend, Wis.)

Other Participants: Lauren Adams (McHenry, Ill.), Chandler Brennan (Manitowoc, Wis.), Caroline Gnadt (Elmhurst, Ill.), Christina Greco (Chicago, Ill.), Molly Kellogg (West Bend, Wis.), Kelly Kuehl (Sherwood, Wis.), Megan Meyers (Hancock, Wis.) and Julia Novotny (Plymouth, Wis.)

TRIPS (an acronym for Turning Responsibility Into Powerful Service) is an alternative break program organized by the Sturzl Center for Community Service and Learning at St. Norbert College. It is designed to give students the opportunity to put their beliefs into action through service and solidarity with various communities. TRIPS challenges students to participate in a week or more of service in areas throughout the United States and the world.
