Community Service Goal

Virginia Tech is halfway to its goal of 300,000 hours of community service by students, faculty and staff to honor the 32 people slain by a student gunman on campus last April.

University officials announced Wednesday that they have received pledges for more than 150,000 hours of service since the VT-Engage campaign was launched October 16. Each student, faculty and staff member is being asked to perform ten hours of community service.

Spokesman Mark Owczarski says he's satisfied that the school has half of the pledges needed.

Alumni have pledged to match the community service hours to honor those killed last April 16 by Seung-Hui Cho, who also took his own life.
