HSS Employee Spotlight: Sherrill Travels to Help Roma Children
Harris School Solutions’ Angie Sherrill has volunteered on three mission trips so far to Bucharest, Romania.
At Harris School Solutions, our employees live our core values in a real way on a daily basis.
Two of those values — “Respect of the Individual” and “Empowerment — At the Point of Contact” — have been demonstrated clearly by our very own Angie Sherrill, Product Specialist at Harris School Solutions.
Over the past six years, Sherrill has made three trips to participate with the Ruth School mission, which is organized by Sherrill’s church in conjunction with Project Ruth.
The Ruth School is located in Bucharest, Romania, where a group of approximately 15 individuals travel regularly in order to perform light maintenance duties, such as cleaning and painting at the Ruth School, or provide activities for the Roma children either at the Ruth School or in neighboring villages.
Sherrill, on her past trips, has volunteered to spend long, hot days painting classrooms and stairwells.
According to Sherrill:
“Whether we’re painting to keep the facilities looking nice and welcoming, or we’re working with the children directly, at the end of the day it’s all about the kids. I have had a couple of opportunities to spend some time with the Roma kids. The kids long for acceptance and it was absolutely transformative to get to actually be there with them, spend time with them, and let them know we care by helping out.”
