MILLIGAN COLLEGE (WJHL) – Milligan College faculty and staff left the comforts of their offices Friday to put the final touches on beautifying the campus before students arrive next week.
Despite early morning rain showers, the teams worked on painting benches, putting down mulch and picking up limbs.
President Dr. Bill Greer said it’s important to show students the importance of serving the community.
“We are all on the same team here,” Greer said. “We all have a shared mission of honoring God to educate men and women to be servant leaders. So, all of us serve. We get in shoulder to shoulder, and arm and arm, to get this work done.”
Along with cleaning, crews began laying down brick for a new walkway behind the library called Sesquicentennial Plaza.
In December, the school will be celebrating its 150th year.
The new plaza will be a place for students to come and gather and study throughout the year.
