Seniors in Arcadia's Theater Arts program took part in the Walk for Water at Villanova University on Sunday, April 3.  "Participating in the Walk was part of a public service project undertaken by the Theater Arts Class of 2011 to benefit Water for Waslala: a not-for-profit foundation dedicated to addressing the water crisis that plagues the Waslala region of central Nicaragua," says Jonathan Shandell, Assistant Professor of Theater Arts.

"By hosting a bake sale in The Chat and soliciting donations from friends and family, the students raised more than $800 for the charity. All told, the Walk for Water drew 325 walkers who collectively raised $20,000 to bring clean water to the people of Waslala."
