Even though the devastating earthquake in Haiti occurred over two years ago, thousands of people are still struggling to get their lives back to normal. Luckily, people like Kris Sharockman, director of the University of St. Thomas MS in Accountancy program, are still willing to pitch in and help those in need.

Kris traveled down to Haiti with a group of people from Eden Prairie, MN, as part of Healing Haiti, a Minnesota faith-based organization. The group chronicled their trip in a blog. This article in Eden Prairie News details her trip and the effect her group’s efforts had on the people they encountered. Kris’ actions are a great example of how helping others, even on a relatively small scale, can make a huge difference and fulfill the St. Thomas mission of working to advance the common good.
