Tech Students Assist with Disaster Response Effort

Several Arkansas Tech University students have volunteered their time to assist in the disaster response in Mayflower.

Most of the students are studying emergency management at Arkansas Tech and volunteered to lend their expertise to help those impacted by the tornadoes last Sunday.

The group assisted Mayflower Lakeview Assembly of God and the surrounding neighborhood in sorting through debris, cutting trees and tree limbs and removing debris.

The following students volunteered on Tuesday:

  • Aaren Kirkwood – Emergency management student
  • Andrea Jackson – Emergency management student
  • Jordan West – Emergency management student
  • Angela Walker
  • Chris Hudson

Officials in the Department of Emergency Management said additional students will be working in area throughout the week, and several Tech students are also volunteering at the United Methodist Committee on Relief call center.Learn more about the Department of Emergency Management at Arkansas Tech.
