University Releases ‘Bridges To El Salvador: A University of Scranton Documentary’

University Releases ‘Bridges To El Salvador: A University of Scranton Documentary’
Rev. Brendan Lally, S.J. '70, the former campus minister and rector of the University, is featured in the documentary.

The University recently released  "Bridges To El Salvador: A University of Scranton Documentary," a video that chronicles Scranton's 20-year relationship with the people of Las Delicias, a village in El Salvador.

 Featuring interviews with the Rev. Brendan Lally, S.J. '70, the former campus minister and rector of the University, Marie Karam, former director of the Language Learning Center at the University, the Rev. Ronald McKinney, S.J., professor of philosophy at the University, and alumni who traveled to El Salvador during their student days, the video examines the origin and evolution of Scranton's faculty, staff, and student service and immersion trips to El Salvador in the aftermath of its brutal civil war. The video also focuses on the work of the University's SEED (Scholarships to Establish Educational Development) Program, which has sponsored the educations of hundreds of children in Las Delicias since its inception, and The SCOPE (Salvadoran Children Of the Poor Education) Foundation, an independent organization founded by Lally and several Scranton alumni that has sponsored thousands of students at the Santa Luisa School in Las Delicias.

 View the documentary below.
