Ralf Etienne is busier than the average university student.
Not only does he have a demanding class schedule and part-time job, the Anderson University senior founded and runs a charity dedicated to bringing the gift of clear sight to people in his native country, Haiti.
With help from supportive church groups, optometrists, ophthalmologists from around the country, and his fellow AU students, Etienne, 25, has collected more than 10,000 pairs of used eyeglasses for his countrymen.

It could be the ambiance, it could be the costumes, choreography or it could just be the singing.
While each factor is strong individually, it’s the combination that makes Anderson University’s latest production so spectacular.
AU’s “A Grand Night for Singing” premieres at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Byrum Hall.
Director and new musical theater teacher David Coolidge said he didn’t make his AU debut easy on himself, but the production is seamless.
