Summer of the Eagles: Ben Pratscher

No more classes, no more books, no more teachers' dirty looks, right? (Well, not our Edgewood College professors. We love you!).

Summer is certainly meant to be a time for our Edgewood College student-athletes to take a break from their academics, recharge their batteries and without question, have some fun. For many Eagles, like Ben Pratscher, summer is a chance to give to others who could use a helping hand.

This summer Ben, an Edgewood College men's tennis player, was hired to the staff of the Appalachia Service Project (ASP). ASP recruits volunteers to work with low-income families in Kentucky, West Virginia, Tennessee and Virginia to renovate sub-standard housing and provide a warm, dry and safe place to live.

You can read all about Ben and his work with ASP on his blog "The Life of a Staffer." Follow the link and read about Ben and his volunteer teams working to put families in need in homes they can depend on.
