Occupational Therapy Assistant students learn by doing through service-learning projects in the community. Recently, students teamed with community volunteers from the New Destinations organization to build a wheelchair accessible ramp for a local resident.

The non-profit New Destinations organization was founded in 1999 by Panola College OTA professors Cheri Lambert and Terri King. The group’s Ramp Up Program assists needy individuals in the community throughout the year. Often, nursing students, church youth groups and other volunteers will participate.
