BLUFFTON – Bailey Hartle of Versailles is participating in a Bluffton University cross-cultural experience in Kentucky during the month of May.
Hartle, along with other Bluffton students, will experience Appalachian culture and engage in work projects with the Mennonite Central Committee Sharing With Appalachian People Program.
