COLLEGE NEWS RELEASE NEW COLLEGE, SARASOTA, FLORIDA FURMAN C ARTHUR INFORMATION FOR RELEASE: SUNDAY, November 13, 1966 New College students participate in many extra-curricular activities, but the one which consistently attracts the greatest number of students is church. Many attend church services regularly in Bradenton and Sarasota. Some of them do more than just attend. They teach Sunday School or sing in the choir, and one student is the organist for a local church. Neil Olsen, a third-year student from Cape Canaveral, teaches the junior high school class every week at St. Paul's Lutheran Church. He describes that age group as "the most challenging to teach" because they keep him on his toes with their questions. At the same church, Carol Ann Childress, of Avon Park, also a third-year student, plays the organ every Sunday for serviceA. The of a Baptist minister, she also attends a meeting of her Baptist youth group on Sunday night. Approximately a dozen students sing in the choir at the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer. Through the generosity of the seven of them receive a music scholarship for their participation. Second-year student Jerry Neugarten, from Chicago, teaches a class of young students every Sunday at Temple Beth Sholom. Subjects for the class in-elude the Bible and history. -more-


NEW COLLEGE Page 2 The students have discovered there is more to teaching a class or playing or singing for services than simply being at the church on Sunday morning, however, Carol Ann takes organ lessons regularly and practices every week for Sunday services. Neil estimates he spends at least an hour in preparation for each hour he teaches, and Jerry spends a large part of SaturdJY readin and studying for his Sunday class. The students in the choir also practice every TI1ursday night for Sunday's services. All the students take their responsibilities seriously and apply the same discipline to their church activities which they use in preparing for classes at school. Because of the number of churches in the area, students have been able to choose ones of their own faith. Several churches have arranged transportation to get the students to Sunday morning services. -30-
