Tessa Newson, a 7th-grade student at Langston Middle School, and Eleanor VanBuren, a third-year comparative literature major, paint the community room at Oberlin Community Services as part of the Martin Luther King Jr. Service Day. “Hands on activity: It’s what MLK Day is all about,” VanBuren says of the experience. According to Bonner Center for Service and Learning Director Beth Blissman, roughly 25 college students, Oberlin city school students, and community members participated in the volunteer work.
