FEARLESS: Cassi Franz

Fearless Friday celebrates individuals, groups, or events that promote change or challenge injustice.


Cassi Franz ’13 has been fearlessly leading this year’s Day of Service. The Day of Service occurs annually and honors Emily Silverstein, a student who passed away in 2009. Emily contributed to Gettysburg’s campus community and beyond through her compassion as well as her passion for social justice. Noor Oweis ’11 started the day of service in 2010 to honor her friend, and now Cassi carries on that tradition.

At the day of service, you can volunteer at Survivors, Inc., help clean up the community, volunteer at the Soup Kitchen, and much more. The Day of Service is designed to not only honor Emily, but also allow students to engage in the Gettysburg community at large by contributing to it and learning from it. Consider getting involved and helping to make this year’s Day of Service a success so that we can carry on this tradition that Noor and Cassi have worked hard to create in honor of Emily Silverstein!

And a shout-out to all who have helped Cassi to put the event together this year!
