The Council commended Cabrini’s “faculty, staff and students for their outstanding contribution to our community,” and recognized the College as “an advocate for social justice and change in Norristown and other older, urban communities.”
Cabrini students have served in Norristown in education, non-profit and small business, social services, violence prevention, prisoner re-entry, and cultural activity programs. This year alone, approximately 600 Cabrini students have contributed roughly 18,000 hours of service to the Norristown community.
Stephen Eberle, coordinator of community partnerships, and David Chiles, director of the Wolfington Center, addressed the Council on the work achieved through the College’s five-year partnership with Norristown.
