HAGERSTOWN—This fall, faculty and staff at Hagerstown Community College will launch the “44 Ways to Change the World” project in honor of psychology professor Vaughn Crowl, who will retire at the end of the semester.
The project was inspired by Crowl’s 44 years of teaching service to the community, 41 of which have been at HCC.
According to Loretta Thornhill, professor of paralegal studies and a fellow faculty member in the Behavioral and Social Sciences/Business Division, Crowl has touched many lives during his time as a teacher and it is those stories that faculty in the division would like to highlight.
Faculty are asking that students, former students and alumni, faculty and staff members begin an individual or group service project in Crowl’s honor. Participants are asked to document their work through pictures, and submit photos and a brief summary to email@example.com no later than Oct. 21. Submitted items will be compiled into a scrapbook, which will be presented to Crowl later this fall. Current and former students are also encouraged to submit stories of how Crowl inspired them to begin service projects, or in other aspects of their lives, for inclusion in the scrapbook.
“This is one of several events planned to honor Dr. Crowl’s outstanding service to his students and the college,” Thornhill said. “Dr. Crowl believes in service to others and he incorporates this ideal into his psychology courses, as well as the leadership course he teaches to high school and college students. We wanted to find a way to recognize his commitment.”
