Service Project Leads to Grant & Trustee Position

Benjamin Mefford, MA in Interdisciplinary Studies student, designed a service learning project that led to a grant award and an invitation to sit on the board of the Northwest Stone Sculptors Association.

While taking the Marylhurst course Compassion in Action in spring 2013, Mefford wrote a grant application for the NWSSA requesting equipment through 4culture.org, an organization that distributes funding for local arts and heritage projects in King County, Wash. The end result was a $1500 grant award for office and field equipment.

An active member of the NWSSA, Mefford has since been elected to their board of directors. He has also been named camp director for one of the association's two annual stone carving symposia.
