Hey-hey everyone! I hope your semester is going real great :)
HP has been up to big things here lately. We have events relatively thought out until February (woot woot!!!) and we are still in the planning stages of events coming up. More and more each week, it seems that John, myself, and our ~over-the-top, lovely, contributing~ committee members are coming up with some really awesome ideas and we cannot wait to execute them for all of campus!
Here’s a photo from our last event: A Time for PEACC.
Speaking of our next event!!! “Love the Hungry” is an event that helps us understand food inequity and the importance of nourishment, as well as how poverty can affect the world around us. I attended the event last year as a committee member and truly felt its’ impact (even though we shipped the meals we packaged across seas) it was an amazing way to volunteer with fresh faces and do some good in the world!
11/28, Red Barn, 6-8 PM-- be there. There’s enough ugly in the world, and we could all use a little sunshine. :)
Have an awesome month, everyone, and contact myself or John Rhodes (the fearless HP Director) if you have any questions/concerns <3

Hello ELSBers and newcomers alike! :)
I hope everyone’s semester is starting off well. John and I had our first kickoff event downtown at the Health Sciences Campus. This was a more informational event to discuss Byck Elementary, why it’s important that we provide them with school supplies, etc. We had a lot of fun planning it! (And the Jimmy Johns was pretty great, too)
We will be decorating ~donation boxes~ at our next meeting September 13th, in the ELSB office (6-7pm) and placing them at the HSC shortly after. We have 10 boxes, so we would love getting all the help we can! <3 Come show out for the awesome kiddos @ Byck Elementary!
My favorite part of this event was definitely working with the principal of Byck. She expressed sincere gratitude and provided us with some really cool info to get our event rolling. It was a real awesome experience!
As a rising senior, I have gained a multitude of experiences from being on the Engage Lead Serve Board. My freshman year I was part of the Green Initiatives Committee, which helped me realize the small efforts we can make to help the earth. A couple years later, I found myself in the position of Director of Human Prosperity.
While in this position, I was able to lead new committee members toward ending social inequality through service and educational opportunities about various socioeconomic issues. Within the community of Louisville, we work closely with Wayside Christian Mission where we serve those experiencing homelessness.
I am honored to be the Director of Human Prosperity for the second year and I look forward to working with my wonderful Associate Director, Mallory Mitchell in the future.
Hello all ELSB lovers!
As a freshman, I joined the Human Prosperity committee due to Freshman LEAD (another awesome ELSB program!) and was impressed and fell in love with the topics we bring to light: socio-economic disparities and issues within U of L, Louisville, and across the world.
I’m happy to announce that we will be continuing our awesome partnership with Wayside Christian Mission here in the Ville -- there’s that old saying: if you want to change the world, start at home!
I am extremely excited to work with John Rhodes, the Human Prosperity ELSB director. I’m honored to be on the board, and give back to the lovely U of L community!
