The Student Education Association (SEA) and Kappa Delta Pi Honors Society (KDP) hosted an event on Saturday April 13th, from 9:00am- 12:00pm. This event was sponsored with a grant awarded to the SEA from the Illinois Education Association (IEA). SEA members, GSU faculty, Lions Club, and community volunteers beautified Smith Park in Chicago Heights. During the event volunteers planted bushes, spread mulch, painted a bench, and cleaned up trash and twigs. This was a great event that helped beautify both the Chicago Heights Community and Earth.
The SEA would like to thank the 40 volunteers that gave up their Saturday morning to participate in this service project. We would also like to thank the Smith Park staff for allowing us to work in their park.
