Serving with Purpose

President's Report | 2016

“When we talk about what students need, Trevecca is a link in the chain of humanity where relationships, mentors and adults do make a difference.”

Helen McCormick

For Ron and Helen McCormick, service isn’t just something they do; it’s a way of life.

The couple, both 1974 graduates of Trevecca, founded The House Student Leadership Center in 2005. The non-profit organization offers tutoring, mentoring, leadership training, recreation and empowerment for middle school and high school students in the greater Washington, D.C. area.

In addition to their work, Ron is the pastor of The Worship Center.

The mission of The House Student Leadership Center is to improve the lives of children, particularly those who are underserved or underprivileged, that society often overlooks. The Center’s program initiatives work to improve health, education and employment outcomes for teens, as well as curb the high school dropout rate and encourage learning and development outside the typical school day.
