Arendell Parrott Academy students members of SERV traveled to Ecuador for six days over their recent break. Sixteen students were selected to participate in this international service based on previous volunteer service.

Students and chaperones attending were: Jim Lewis, Sophie Jenkins, Taylor Perry, Mitzi Moye, Andy Moye, Hannah Steinberg, William McPhaul, Jeff Bland, Alex Urban, David Fields, Omar Taha, Amr Almasri, Griffin Steelman, Leslie Lewis, Jane Fields, Bobbie Leigh Barbour, Elizabeth Majette, Camille Edwards, Yasmine Habal and Sarah Edwards.

Students stayed in a small mountain village of Panecillo.They worked with the Tandana Foundation, which offers cross-cultural experiences rooted in community service. Students worked to build a retaining wall around a local elementary school. They also shared craft projects and games with students at the school and donated arts and medical supplies and sports equipment.

The SERV association was established nearly 20 years ago to promote volunteerism at Parrott. To qualify for membership, a student must give at least 12 hours of community service during the calendar year.

Cool, clean salads may not seem appropriate for March, when the weather wobbles between the tentative spring rays of sunshine and the stubborn gray remnants of winter. But maybe that's why this salad is perfectly timed.

You can apply the cliches "less is more" and "what you see is what you get,…
