Two Pi Pi Chapter Members featured for their senior project​​​​​​​

Two Pi Pi members Shayna Lowry and Jessica Pilant along with another student Christopher Doellman were featured in the hospital newsletter, Inside Blessing, for their Senior Leadership Change project. The class of 2018 presented its projects during the semi-annual Shining Stars even on May 2. To help patient's with dementia, they created a Fiddler's Mat featuring buttons, zippers and Velcro to give patients with dementia activities to distract them, reducing agitation with their new surroundings. Blessing's Volunteer Services department is seeking volunteers to make Fiddler's Mats from this template. Great work PiPi chapter members!
