A group of seniors from Worcester Preparatory School has created Students Change A Nation, or Students CAN, to help build schools in Cambodia. The group, which includes Claire Stickler, Lewes; Alissa Talbert, Eden, Md.; Razaak Eniola, Salisbury, Md.; Lucas Baier, Ocean City, Md.; Chris Klug, Salisbury; and Daniel Rosa, Lewes, is working with the nonprofit organization World Assistance for Cambodia. Their goal is to provide St. Paul’s School of Hope with an English/computer teacher, a low-energy computer network with internet access, a vegetable garden, a water filter, solar panels, and a library.

To earn funds for Students CAN, the seniors have sponsored events at DiFebo’s Restaurant in Bethany Beach and the Greene Turtle in Ocean City, Md., and a bake sale on the boardwalk. Besides their work for St. Paul’s, they have run clothing drives for local thrift stores. Their efforts so far have netted more than $7,000, well on their way to a goal of $15,000.

Worcester Prep AP history teacher Larry Morris said, “Students CAN is a great story of initiative, compassion and organizational skills. It was Claire Stickler’s idea, and she enlisted a number of her friends to help. I continue to be very impressed with what these wonderful young people have achieved.”

The volunteers have created their own website and Facebook page, which can be found at and on Facebook by searching for Students CAN.
