The Big Event at Longwood is the largest campus wide community service project of Longwood’s history. Last year, over 500 students completed over 50 service jobs in the town of Farmville and surrounding communities-a huge increase from 2009 with 12 jobs and 250 students! Service jobs include yard work, cleaning siding, painting, light construction, trash pickup and more.
For the first two years that The Big Event was at Longwood I was the webmaster and served on the executive board for this service project day.. The first year I created a very basic set of pages with some basic graphics and HTML. My second and final year as webmaster I utilized the CMS Mod-X and used CSS and my Photoshop skills to create a more interactive website that you can see to your left. I have been able to help The Big Event as an Alumni with technical expertise and have helped implement their new website.
