Crest’s service club was a product of the Sixties. Students of that era wanted to contribute to the metropolitan community and assuage their feelings of guilt about the wealth and opportunities afforded to them. The club was started by students and remains to this day a student-run activity. That students “run the show” is not the only unique feature of Crest’s service club; the club’s purpose focuses exclusively on helping people in need, not on helping Crest students develop or grow. The service club has been tremendously popular for twenty-four years, and much of its success is attributable to the advisor’s charisma and to the significant leadership opportunities afforded to students.
