education materials and supplies for students. The collection will conclude at graduation in May.

service hours have the opportunity to record them as they go through this on-line, on-your-honor service log
system. Go to www.vwc.edu/service where you will find a button on the homepage that says DOCUMENT

Honors and Scholars, be sure to check the Honors and Scholars line in the Service Type box. You may print
your log to submit wherever your service is required.
