MU Students serve Schuyler County
Ten University of Missouri students served the county through a program called Mizzou Alternative Breaks. These students worked at three projects over the weekend of October 23rd, 24th, and 25th. These projects included working the community garden, working at the Clothes and More shop, and working the haunted house. “These young adults were fun, energetic, and organized. They requested to serve the county in whatever capacity we needed them to,” stated Darla Campbell, MU Extension County Program Director who was one of the local contacts for this project. “Everyone was pleased with the work they did and we thank them for their service.” This program is an opportunity to bring students into all areas of the state where they can learn about the local community and the community benefits by experiencing new perspectives, new energy, and capable extra hands.
