CANTON, Mo. — Paul Daniels, freshman legal studies major of Alton, was among the 550 Culver-Stockton students, alumni, faculty, staff and community members who spent Saturday, Aug. 23, volunteering for the sixth annual Extreme Dome Makeover.
The volunteers spruced up 16 work sites in the town of Canton, Mo. They spent the day painting, landscaping and cleaning. Project sites included both public areas and private residences. Public sites included Canton Senior Housing, City Hall, Martin Park, the Mississippi River Park, the Canton Community Garden and more.
Extreme Dome Makeover provides the opportunity to introduce incoming students to the community of Canton, as well as to their classmates, advisers and neighbors.
“We want our students to know that being a servant leader is important,” Dean of Students Chris Gill said. “Hopefully by the time they graduate they will know that importance and they’ll be able to lead service projects in their own community.”
Culver-Stockton College, located in Canton, Mo., is a four-year residential institution in affiliation with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).
