A group of 28 students from North Dakota State University spent a day at the Schrader Center this week helping with spring cleaning. The warm weather really encouraged both staff and students to head outside and work on re-chipping the trails, hosing the walkways, washing windows and giving the place a general sprucing up!
The ND State University students were participating in the Students Today, Leaders Forever Pay It Forward Tour, a multi-day, multi-city experience that engages students in service and leadership, travel to and service in a new city each day, learning about social issues, building lasting relationships, and making a commitment to continued action when they return home. All STLF College Pay It Forward Tours travel to six cities across the country over the course of nine days. Each tour consists of up to 40 students. The ND State University Tour departed from Fargo, ND on March 9 and made stops along the way to their destination of Washington, DC in Mason City, IA, Quincy, IL, Salem, IL, Cincinnati, OH and Wheeling, WV.
A BIG thanks to the group for all of their help and hard work!
