BC's Labor Day Is No Holiday

BC celebrated its tradition of work and service on April 27th with the annual Labor Day events.

Students participate in service project with Habitat for Humanity

While some students spent the day celebrating and enjoying the activities around campus, many students participated in Labor Day projects on campus and in the community.

Twenty students helped construct sheds for a Habitat for Humanity project. Another service project involved cleaning up litter along Highway 21.

The Black Music Ensemble, Concert Choir, Jazz Orchestra, Contemporary Dance team, Bluegrass Ensemble, and the Country Dancers all spent part of Labor Day presenting entertaining educational programs in different schools in the area.

Other groups spent the day visiting Berea Health Care Manor, the Four Square Church, Madison Country Action Team produce market, and Crab Orchard Elementary School.

All work projects were not off campus as several departments teamed up with students and staff to beautify their work areas. Presser had its biofiltration swale plug planting project and Island planting. In addition, trees were planted on Highway 595 between the Dead Horse Knob and Artisan Center, plants were removed in several locations on campus, and the landscape around Phelps Stokes was improved.
