Big Sunday founder to speak student body

By Rebecca Nussbaum

The founder of the largest regional community service event in the country will speak at an assembly on Nov. 19. David Levinson of Big Sunday will give a speech concluding Community Council week, which includes a community service fair, Christmas ornament decorating and bake sales.

In the past years, Community Council has sponsored a Big Sunday event which many students have attended, head of Community Council Patrick Edwards ’11 said. Last May, they helped beautify an elementary school, and Edwards expects that they will sponsor a similar project this year.

Edwards worked with Levinson during past Big Sunday projects, and he wanted Levinson to speak during Community Council week.

“I knew that he would be a good speaker because he coordinates much of the community service in L.A.,” he said.

Community Council member Ryan Lash ’12 called Levinson and asked him speak at the assembly.
