600 Ferrum College Students and Community Members Learn the Meaning of the College's
Motto "Not Self, But Others."
On Sunday, September 2, 600 Ferrum College students and community members learned
the meaning of the College's motto "Not Self, But Others" by working together to package
108,000 meals for the hungry in a campus Stop Hunger Now Event.
"How fitting and appropriate that the first event of this centennial year was the
Stop Hunger Now project this past Sunday. With most of our students and many faculty
and staff participating, and the additional support of area churches and service organizations,
we prepared 108,000 meals for the hungry of the world," said Ferrum College President
Jennifer Braaten. "There can be no more exciting and visible way to express the ethos
and motto of Ferrum, 'Not Self, but Others,' than by having so many working together
to accomplish this goal."
