3 locals do Evansville project

Three local students were among a group of freshmen at the University of Evansville who participated in a freshman service project.

Drew Hollman, Madeline Metter and Tamara Munro, all of Huntington, took part in the project, which sent students to 20 locations throughout Evansville, including parks, community centers and other nonprofit organizations.

The students completed a number of tasks, from painting to landscaping.

The annual Freshman Service Project is a part of Welcome Week, a program designed to help incoming students transition into college before classes begin.
