Several local residents have been named to Millersville University (MU) of Pennsylvania’s dean’s list for the fall 2011 semester:

Denver students include: Kristyn L. Starr, a freshman; Jayne A. Althouse, Crystal A. Fisher and Alisha Fitzwater, juniors; and Darin A. Beachy, Ryan M. Griffith and Spencer C. Nissly, seniors.

Reinholds residents honored are: Kevin S. Martin, a senior; and Christina M. McLaughlin, a junior.

Stevens students on the list include: Gregory A. Gillis and Korrine M. Graybill, freshmen; and Courtney L. Weise, a senior. Megan Repoley of Stevens was among 29 Lebanon Valley College students who traveled to Washington, D.C., as part of the 2012 Social Justice Institute, Jan. 12 through 14, 2012. Repoley is a senior health science major.

The three-day leadership institute allowed students to explore how oppression impacts true equality. It began on campus, where students learned about social justice, envision liberation and considered models of oppression/oppression and liberation. On Jan. 13, the students traveled to Washington, D.C., touring the National Portrait Gallery, American Museum of Natural History, National Museum of the American Indian and the Holocaust Museum. Additionally, Repoley visited DC Central Kitchen, which turns leftover food into millions of meals for thousands of at-risk individuals while offering nationally recognized culinary job training to once homeless and hungry adults. Its mission is to use food as a tool to strengthen bodies, empower minds and build communities.

Participants evolved from being appreciative of diversity to understanding systems that maintain oppression and privilege; developed strong leadership and critical thinking skills; are eligible for membership in the Pallas Society, a campus-based social justice honor society; and qualified for the EDGE Certificate in Diversity and Social Justice from the Office of Student Activities.
