This afternoon the majority of our group met at the Waterloo airport to begin our trek to Haiti. We have a great group with a variety of backgrounds for our time in Haiti. We have a layover in Chicago tonight before an early flight Monday morning.
This year we have Alyssa, Katelin, Morgan, and Tessa who are students at Hawkeye; Cole who is a student at Iowa State and Iowa FFA State Officer; Arlan, Bob, and Darwin who are community members; Kelsey who is the Director of Iowa Education Program's at the World Food Prize; and Meghan and Brad faculty at Hawkeye.
We had a great dinner sharing conversations and getting to know everyone better, before some relaxation at the hotel. Kelsey will join us here in Chicago later tonight and we look forward to having her with us over the next week.
Check back for daily updates to follow our adventures in Haiti!
