On May 18, the Texas Exes Washington, D.C. Chapter helped spruce up Jefferson Middle School as part of Hands on D.C., a nonprofit that works to improve school conditions. About 10 chapter members and six friends turned out for the day of service, which included cleaning up a gymnasium, painting doors, and hanging basketball nets. The volunteers served a combined 60 hours.

Johann Sung, BS ’04, an at-large board member with the chapter, says he was moved when a student thanked the volunteers for helping his school. “There is no greater reward than to be told by someone that you improved their life,” Sung says.
