Wichita State senior learns how to help community through grant proposal

Savannah Paschal started to understand the power individuals possess to help their community while a student at Campus High School. Whether organizing a cookie fundraiser to benefit a homeless shelter or serving as president of the art club, Paschal found rewards in getting involved.

“I was super invested,” Paschal said. “One simple lesson is to tackle problems that you can see.”

At Wichita State University, Paschal continued to expand the desire to serve the community through work with Alce su voz (Spanish for “speak out.”). The coalition’s purpose is to improve health equity for Spanish speakers and speakers of indigenous languages in Kansas.
