Students from Indian Hills Community College decided to give back to their community as their fall project. The students in Wapello Hall joined Tenco staff members on November 9 to do some needed yard work at one of Tenco’s residential homes.
The nine students raked leaves, trimmed bushes, and cleaned up the yard. Students were from all over the world including Sri Lanka. Students participating included: John Simmons, Chantele Guido, Shaigan Marten, Bhagya Godakanda, Jessica Allen, Kyle Ryun, Jacob Wilson, and Jake Spunagle. They were led by Shaela Hayden.
