Photos taken in the Philippines by two Black Hills State University student photographers are on display at the Jacket Zone in Spearfish. The photos were taken as part of the International Service Learning Program at BHSU.
Through the lens of their cameras, two Black Hills State University students invite the public to experience their International Service Learning visit to the Philippines in a new photo display at the Jacket Zone on Main Street in Spearfish.
Bryce Boser, mass communications major from Box Elder, and Richard Walbe, mass communications major from Deadwood, joined six other BHSU students in the Philippines in 2016 for a cultural and educational exchange. The BHSU students worked with students of Sudlon High School, a K-10 school located in the highlands on the island of Cebu.
The gallery includes poignant images of BHSU students interacting with children at the school, as well as the hardships of life in a developing nation. In the photo gallery fact sheet hanging at the Jacket Zone, Boser and Walbe write that the photos on display show that joy of life is found the world over, regardless of circumstance.
View the photo display at the Jacket Zone during store hours, 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday, 617 N. Main Street, Spearfish.
Another group of BHSU students will do a service learning project in the Philippines in March. To learn more about the International Service Learning Program at BHSU, visit www.BHSU.edu/international.
