Media Advisory – Retiree Volunteer Program

Southern Illinois University Carbondale Chancellor Walter V. Wendler will serve as host for a reception and review of SIUC's Retiree Volunteer Program on Thursday, Oct. 6. The event is set for 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. in the Student Center Old Main Lounge. The program, which started last year, involves retirees from SIUC and the Carbondale community volunteering in local schools. Retirees serve as tutors for reading, writing or other subjects or volunteer their time to assist with other activities in the schools. Reporters, photographers and camera crews are welcome to cover the event.
