All told, Wilson’s 17 Curran Scholars will donate 4,420 hours ‒ 260 hours each ‒ to their communities this year, and though their academic schedules are full, their service is teaching them lessons in what it means to be active citizens in the world long after they collect their diplomas.

It was, she admitted, overwhelming at first but the course soon turned into one of her favorites, not just because of what she learned, but because of the instructor who taught it. “This is the second course I’ve taken with Jordi (Gendra), and I will continue to take his classes to complete my minor in religious studies,” Trusky said. “I’ve learned to love the subject because of his courses.”
