Middlebury College students observed Martin Luther King Day by getting up early on Saturday morning, Jan. 17, and digging in for a day of service to the community.
First the women’s tennis team rallied at 7:30 a.m. to work at the local food bank to assist the hungry.
Next, at 9 a.m. a group of students started preparing an enormous lasagna and salad luncheon for the region’s migrant farm workers and their families.
And by 10 a.m., more than 60 students and a handful of staff members were positioned around the region cooking, stacking, reading, baking, moving, delivering, and performing music with and for residents in connection with the College’s second annual MLK Day of Service.
Long one of the leading producers of Peace Corps volunteers among small colleges, Middlebury has risen to No. 3 in the rankings this year, with 21 alumni now serving as volunteers.
Also serving as Peace Corps volunteers this year are five alumni of programs at the Monterey Institute of International Studies, a Middlebury College affiliate in Monterey, California.
In the small college category, for schools with fewer than 5,000 undergraduates, the University of Chicago led the way with 35 volunteers and St. Olaf College was second with 26. Middlebury moved from a tie for 16th place last year, with 17 volunteers, to a third-place tie this year, with Smith College and the University of Puget Sound. Since the founding of the Peace Corps 47 years ago, 443 Middlebury alumni have served as volunteers.
