On January 21st, 2017, a devastating tornado hit a local town, called Petal, tearing up houses and the community. Year two Allied Health students teamed up with Law and public Safety students and town members to help clean up. Students split up in groups and went down different streets to find homes and families that were affected the most and needed help either cleaning up or moving out. Throughout this project, students learned hands-on materials by helping others. This was accomplished by the students interacting with the victims affected, cleaning up around the houses and providing support for those in need.
