As part of University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences’ dedication to community service, it allows employees to take up to three, paid days off per year to do community service. Frank Bennett, Academic Advisor in St. Augustine, dedicates those three days, plus every one of his vacation days, to humanitarian aid efforts for natural disaster victims and mission trips overseas.
“I want to serve people,” Bennett said. “It’s always been my thing.”
Bennett came to USAHS after serving seven years in the U.S. Army. He joined as a military police officer in 2009 and worked in Germany for two years.
