ACU students help Christian Homes through class projects

For immediate release
May 5, 2004

Students in the Advanced Digital Media class and one of the Business and Professional Writing classes at Abilene Christian University put their skills to use for Christian Homes of Abilene as part of their class projects. 

The Advanced Digital Media class created a website, and the Business and Professional Writing class created a brochure for Christian Homes, which is a non-profit organization providing maternity, adoption and foster care services.  The brochure was presented to Robert Springer, president of Christian Homes, on Tuesday and the Web site will be presented Friday at 10 a.m. at Christian Homes. 

The Digital Media class in the Department of Journalism and Mass Communication researched, planned the design and architecture of the site, and made presentations to the staff of Christian Homes as the site progressed. 

"The six students in the class formed a team and decided which roles needed to be filled by looking at each individual's skills and assigned roles," said Susan Lewis, instructor in the Department of Journalism and Mass Communication. "This is a very talented group of students; I'm glad we're able to help Christian Homes achieve its mission by using the skills they are learning at ACU."

A group of four students from Dr. Bill Rankin's Business and Professional Writing class in the Department of English chose to create a brochure about Christian Homes. The class worked with Christian Homes throughout the semester to create an informative brochure that will be given to families considering adoption.

"The students have worked hard on both projects for this ministry all semester," Springer said. "They have done a great job providing us with a website and printed material that will help Christian Homes, and their gracious contribution of labor to the community throughout the semester is greatly appreciated."
