Two Randolph students were among the 90 participants from across the nation at the recent Alternative Break Citizenship School at the University of South Carolina Upstate.

Brittany Lundy ’19 and Wil Ridley ’20, along with Assistant Dean of Students Michael Maningas, participated in the training, entitled “Reframing Disability: Communities of Independence and Self-Determination.” During the five-day event, the students learned about the evolving definition of what it means to be disabled and worked with Christmas in Action—an organization that contributes to circumventing the historical institutionalization of individuals with disabilities. Activities included roofing, painting, remodeling, and constructing ramps to help preserve affordable, accessible housing options for residents of the Spartanburg, South Carolina area.

Lundy and Ridley each received special certification for their work.
