Organizing & Leading FUSION: "Who Does That?"

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Aug. 20, 2012) — Today marks the 10th anniverary of FUSION, the largest one-day service event in the state of Kentucky.

Each year during K Week, more than 1,000 students meet up on UK's campus and head out to more than 100 community organizations in need of their service. 

Who makes sure that students have more than 100 sites to decide between when figuring out where they'll volunteer? Watch the video above to see how UK student Brian Garcia does it!

This is the second video feature in a new series produced by UKNow called "Who Does That?"  The idea is to show you the unique students, faculty and staff who make UK tick. 

During K Week, we'll introduce you to a new student or staff member each day to answer the question, "Who does that?" as it relates to welcoming back our students for a brand new academic year.

We want to showcase how UK students, faculty and staff work each and every day to keep The Kentucky Promise alive and well. 

UKNow plans to make the "Who Does That?" series a monthly feature, so if you've ever wondered "Who does that?" about something at UK, please email us.  Who knows?  We might just use your question for our next feature!  

FUSION is a program housed in the UK Center for Community Outreach. The CCO seeks to serve, connect and unite the University of Kentucky with the surrounding community in collaborative efforts to promote life-long community service.
