LARNED -- On May 3, 15 students in the Department of Agriculture Home Horticulture class and their instructor, Jean Gleichsner, traveled to Camp Pawnee in Larned to assist with renovation of the camp by Larned Pride.

FHSU students helped plant trees, install drip irrigation, mulch the site and paint donated playground equipment from Larned State Hospital. Students also laid weed barrier and mulched the vineyard.

The service-learning project allowed students to integrate community service activities into academics. Larned Pride was created in 2009 by a group of local residents with a mission of creating a better environment and enhancing health for those in Pawnee County and the surrounding area. Camp Pawnee, a previous Boy Scout camp donated to the county, sits on 36 acres and is a perfect location for children and families to go and enjoy outside physical activity.

Funding for the service-learning project was provided by the Sunflower Foundation and the FHSU Provost's Office.

Students participating were Logan Mitchek, Kit Carson, Colo.; Bryn Benoit, Damar; Seth Thompson, Bogue; Emma Skinner, Belle Plaine; Macy McCurry, Burrton; Alisha Markle, Rozel; Alan Bruggeman, Rexford; Kevin Elpers, Strasburg, Colo.; Sam Rork, Horton; Clayton Johnson, Beeler; Luke Schroeder, Colby; David Wood, Lewis; Michael Herbert, Dodge City; Abbey Rudd, Bucklin; and Ashley Montgomery, Hays.
