What I Did This Summer-Dominican Republic

What I Did This Summer


‘Wonderful ambassadors’

The Dominican Republic excursion was the first time Cardon had taken Carolina students on such a trip, and he called them wonderful ambassadors for the University and the United States.

“The students worked hard in uncomfortable weather, and the nuns and others in charge of the orphanage were deeply touched by their generosity and good will,” he said. “The children loved playing with them.

“It is always wonderful trying to make a positive impact on the world and developing relationships,” he said. “But I walked away feeling as if the Dominicans had given more to us, rather than vice versa.”
