Find Inspiration in Donating to Providence

Shelli Cammenga, Class of 2013

shellie-cammengaProvidence graduate Shelli Cammenga, class of 2013, carries out the mission statement of Providence in her everyday life. We exist to equip students to be “fully engaged in their church, their community, and the world for the glory of God and for service to humanity”.

After graduation, Shelli returned to her native Michigan to teach English to seventh through 12-graders at the Reformed Heritage Christian School. Shelli spent her days teaching and her nights grading papers. “I needed something to get the focus off just myself and my work and volunteering was not only a way to interact with people outside my bubble but also give back to the community.”

At the age of 23, Shelli has dedicated more than 60 hours of her time to volunteer at the Heritage Community of Kalamazoo, a nonprofit senior housing provider with more than 400 residents in seven senior housing communities.

For all of her work and dedication, Shelli was awarded the 2015 STAR (Sharing Time and Resources) Award in the Young Adult Volunteer category.

“Liberal arts is a conversation through which we obtain wisdom. True wisdom, then, founded in the fear and love of the Lord, engenders a desire for a deeper knowledge and love of one another, teaches us and aids us in forgiving and reconciling with one another and encourages us to explore together the limitless implications of our redeemed existence on this earth.”
