When sociology students at Hagerstown Community College first walk through the doors of Daniel Madron's classroom, they quickly learn their education will extend beyond four walls. Lessons will be learned at The Salvation Army and REACH Cold Weather Shelter, both in Hagerstown. They'll shop for groceries at local supermarkets, then prepare and serve that food to people who, on a daily basis, don't have access to a decent meal. Hungry minds will feed hungry stomachs. And along the way, these students will receive a cold dose of reality.

By KERRY LYNN FRALEY Staff Writer Hagerstown resident Darrieck Mount said he's found Frostburg State University's Hagerstown Center a godsend in his effort to juggle a full-time course load with his full-time job. "It's great, since they're working with HJC, it keeps the tuition down," said Mount, 25, who plans to graduate this year with a bachelor's degree in sociology. "And it avoids an hour trip each way to go to another four-year college. " The center's convenient location on the Public Square and economical in-state tuition have made it an attractive option for nontraditional students like Mount, said James W. Shaw, director of the center.

Warren lives in a two-room apartment near a long stretch of railroad tracks. "It's not much, but it's home," she said. "Many people have no place to live. I know I'm blessed.

Hunger knows no holiday, but the hunger of more than 200 people was sated on Good Friday with a luncheon cooked and served at the Salvation Army by volunteers from Hagerstown Community College. "It's a holiday and normally we'd be closed, but the students volunteered to come in," said Ruth Williams, the kitchen manager. Friday was her day to be served rather than serve, along with the volunteers who regularly prepare the meals for 150 or more people every weekday. Eight minutes after the kitchen opened there were more than 100 people already seated, with the HCC students' sociology instructor Daniel Madron passing out plastic ware, drinks and plates with thick-sliced ham, mash potatoes, stuffing, corn and green beans with fruit cups and pies for dessert.
