On Thursday October 22, 2009 several JMU athletes had a chance to take part in the Harrisonburg Summit. 

The summit was an opportunity for JMU athletes to join hundreds of people, community leaders, and organizations to discuss issues related to cultural and religious diversity in Harrisonburg and Rockingham community.

The JMU athletes listened and actively joined together with community members to share successes, create and strengthen partnerships, and explore ways to address challenges.
