Southern Living Profiles Rhodes Students


Publication Date: 6/13/2007

Jessica Lotz ’08 and Joel Parsons ’07 are featured in the June issue of Southern Living magazine as examples of Rhodes students who participate in the Summer Service Fellows program. The article profiles Parsons’ More Than Art program that builds community among homeless people, church members and Rhodes students, and notes that as part of his Watson Scholarship he will spread the program to other countries.

Lotz’s  work through the Rhodes Hollywood Springdale Partnership is also front and center. She is pictured working in the neighborhood garden that she planted with  residents of the area close to campus and she describes the Healthy Thursdays program that steers neighbors toward healthier lives via exercise and fresh produce.
