Students Pitch in To Help Drought-Ridden Community

November 19, 2007

Professor Geri Schultz and the students in her international business class have arranged to have thousands of bottles of water transported to the drought-stricken town of Orme, Tenn., on the morning of Tuesday, Nov. 20. A truck with the water will leave Lindenwood’s campus at 7 a.m. for Orme, which is three hours from St. Charles.

The water and the trucking services have all been donated, thanks to the efforts to Schultz and her class, who took on the project after hearing about the town of 125 people, which is virtually without water service because of severe draught conditions in that region of the United States. The students’ goal was to provide the water in time for Thanksgiving, and that is going to happen. A water project to connect the town to a more reliable water supply is still months from completion.

Water was donated by Clearbrook Water of Mid-America Coffee and Ronnoco, Dasani and Coca Cola. Trucking services were donated by Hogan Trucking.

Please call Chris Duggan at the number above or at 636-544-1191 (mobile) if you are interested in covering the departure of the water truck.
