Matt Lyttle ’06 was featured in the April 19 Finger Lakes Times for his work with public service, in an article titled “Becoming a part of the community”. Lyttle runs the Geneva Heroes program on campus, doing service activities around town with local eighth-graders. He’s also the executive chair for next fall’s Day of Service and just recently served in an advisory role organizing the New York Campus Compact conference at Nazareth College. His first experience with service at the Colleges was at Orientation.
“That’s how I got into public service,” said Lyttle. “Here at Hobart and William Smith, right from the start — I think it was the third day that you arrive on campus — you spend the morning out in the community doing public service. For me, that was really cool because I love getting my hands dirty, and I love working really hard with people that I don’t know and leaving a good impression for them about me.”
The article also quoted President Mark Gearan, Ave Bauder, director of public service, Debra DeMeis, dean of William Smith, and Chaplain Lesley Adams.
