[444] MTSU students ‘go green’ at playground for ‘The BIG Event’ April 16

MURFREESBORO — MTSU’s Student Government Association will do its part to enhance the greenery around one of Murfreesboro’s most popular recreation spots.

“The BIG Event” will take place at 8 a.m. Saturday, April 16, at Kids’ Castle Playground, 200 Golf Lane off Old Fort Parkway, in partnership with the MTSU Center for Student Involvement and Leadership and the United Way. It is one of the largest one-day community service projects involving college students in the nation.

“Students will be joining forces with the community to celebrate the centennial of National Park Day,” said Myeshia Burchett, a senior nursing major from Memphis, Tennessee, and SGA’s philanthropic coordinator.

More than 400 volunteers, including students and community members, are expected to help cut down invading flora, plant new trees and remove trash from the area.

“MTSU SGA is ready to give back and make this year bigger than ever,” said Burchett.

For more information, call Burchett at 615-494-8912 or sgaphil@mtsu.edu. Sign up to volunteer at https://mtsu.collegiatelink.net/.
