Students from The U assist with flood relief in Iowa
"Flooding in Iowa has hit these communities hard," noted Courtny Nesheim, AmeriCorps VISTA in the Center for Academic Engagement and trip leader, "it’s up to individuals and groups in neighboring cities and states to help these communities rebuild. Disasters can take only a couple minutes to destroy, so we have to commit to the years it may take to rebuild."
Students volunteering their service in Cedar Falls included Kaci Nickerson of Cambridge, Neb., Amber Schmidt of Hartford, S.D., Bryan Palmer of Pierre, S.D., Yunlin Zheng of China and Allie White of Germany.
