Volunteers Serve to Remember Martin Luther King Jr.


Muskingum University recognized Martin Luther King Jr. with its annual day of service.

Volunteers for the day gathered into groups early in the morning on a day off from classes before being dispersed throughout Muskingum and Guernsey Counties to help with various tasks around the community.

According to the Student Life office, this day of service is to honor Martin Luther King Jr. by providing a day of appreciation.

“It’s fun to see the students go out and do this service, and they never want anything in return,” said Stacey Allan, Director of Greek Affairs.

The day began with a breakfast and a presentation of Martin Luther King Jr.’s life and accomplishments, held in Boyd’s large auditorium before students were led by a faculty member to different locations, ready to give back to the community.

Muskingum sophomore, Miranda O’Neal, helped pass out fliers for United Way informing the public about their free tax services, and said the experience was worthwhile.

“I liked reaching out to the community, knowing I was making a difference in someone’s life,” said O’Neal. “I helped out last year too and it’s definitely something I’ll continue to do in the future.”

After filling out a preference list on OrgSync, the students were sent off to their locations, some of which involved work with local animal shelters, the United Way, various rehab facilities, Christ’s Table, Bethel Community Center, The Village of New Concord, Breaking Free writing camp in Norwich, and Putnam District.
