Kettering students volunteered for a neighborhood clean up on the edges of campus.

Kettering students volunteered for a neighborhood clean up on the edges of campus. About 20 volunteers filled more than 70 bags of trash, swept, raked and pulled weeds on Bluff Street from Chevrolet Avenue to Matheson Street and at the corner of Chevrolet and Second Street.

"People would drive by, give us the thumbs up, honk and shout encouragement," said Betsy Homsher, director of Women Student Affairs, "the students said it felt great to help out the community."  

The event was coordinated by Homsher and Debbie Stewart, administrative assistant, with the help of Nadine Thor, director of Environment, Health and Safety, who provided the gloves and trash bags, and Patricia Engle, director of Physical Plant, who arranged for the group to use the campus groundskeeping truck.
