Barbara K. Emert-Strouse, assistant professor of dental hygiene, was joined by her family, including Scott L. Neff, a May culinary arts and systems graduate, in serving a free dinner for the community recently at Christ Episcopal Church in Williamsport. The “Pay It Forward” dinner began as a class project for students in the college’s Community Dental Health course and has evolved into a volunteer project for second-year dental hygiene students and Emert-Strouse’s family. The church offers a free meal for the community on the first Saturday of each month, and Emert-Strouse and her family provided the groceries and the manpower to prepare and serve the May edition.
