Sutton native travels
to Africa with college
SUTTON - Margaret Amorello of Sutton recently traveled to Lesotho, Africa, with a group of students and faculty from Wittenberg University in Ohio. The service trip, initiated six years ago by associate professor of history Scott Rosenberg, took travelers to Lesotho to assist communities through personal interaction and the expansion of community resources. To prepare for the trip, students participated in activities to raise money and collect donations. Wittenberg's Rotaract Club organized a donation drive to collect sunglasses, which were passed out to the residents of Lesotho. During their stay, students participated in different activities, such as helping out at the community center, constructing another playground, interacting with local children and residents, getting an insider's view at a local textile factory, and enjoying the traditional foods, customs, and gorgeous scenery. They were also able to interact with children in an HIV clinic and see first-hand the results of the devastating disease that afflicts up to 30 percent of the population in Lesotho. Ms. Amorello is a 2007 graduate of Worcester Academy.
