Three students at Missouri University of Science and Technology recently spent the afternoon helping an employee of the university clean up debris from his barn that was destroyed in the Feb. 29 storm.
Paul Shaffer, a custodian who works in the students’ dormitory, was discussing the storm damage on his property when Timmy Kenny, a junior in biological sciences from Wildwood, Mo., asked if he needed help cleaning up. Shaffer said, no, it wasn’t really necessary, but Kenny, Warren Hall, a sophomore in aerospace engineering from Cypress, Texas, and Nate Kamrath, a sophomore in computer science from Newburgh, Ind., visited his home that weekend to help out.
“They helped with a lot of heavy lifting that I could not do myself,” says Shaffer. “It makes me proud that our school is educating these kids to become engineers and people that care about others. There are not enough thanks that our family can give.”
