Steppin’ Out takes nearly 3,000 students out to serve Waco community
Since 1985, the Steppin’ Out tradition has helped Baylor students get out into the Waco community, serving agencies, families, churches and public areas through practical service.
Approximately 2,800 students volunteered this past Saturday across the city, working at 55 different sites with projects ranging from painting homes to reviving yards. Yet the director of Steppin’ Out, senior international business major Erika Sherhart, says it’s not the numbers that matter — it’s what those students do after being exposed to the opportunity.
“I hope that students take advantage of Steppin’ Out and use it as a stepping stone to serve in other capacities at Baylor as well as in the future,” said Sherhart.
