Football Lends a Hand
This spring, 13 members of the Susquehanna football team took part in SU SERVE, the university’s month-long campaign to complete 10,000 volunteer service hours, by cleaning trails along the historic battlefields of Gettysburg, Pa.
The effort was spearheaded by Anthony Palazzolo ’13, of Jenkinstown, Pa., the team’s manager and a member of Tau Kappa Epsilon. Palazzolo organized a similar effort last year with his fraternity, and this year helped coordinate the football team’s trip.
The group cleared brush, trees and trash along the trails between Little Round Top and Big Round Top, located at the southern peak of the Gettysburg battlefield.
Susquehanna’s alumni, students, parents, faculty and staff smashed SU SERVE’s 10,000-hour goal by completing more than 17,000 hours of community service during the month of April.
Offensive coordinator Nate Milne and his wife, Kristen, accompanied Palazzolo and the following student-athletes to Gettysburg for the day of service:
Adrian Bernard ’15, of East Stroudsburg, Pa.
George Pachucy ’15, of Olyphant, Pa.
Mike Hetherington ’15, of Millburn, N.J.
