Students participate in ‘Makeover’; show scheduled to air Nov. 14

WKU’s ALIVE Center for Community Partnerships and the Student Activities office recently sent 16 WKU students and two Student Activities staff members to Antioch, Tenn., to repair the flood-damaged Lighthouse Preschool that will be featured in the ABC television show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.

A group from WKU participated recently in an "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" project in Antioch, Tenn.

The episode is scheduled to air at 7 p.m. (Central time) Nov. 14 on WBKO and other ABC affiliates.

As part of their work, the WKU students were divided into two groups — one helped serve breakfast to the volunteers and the other sorted clothes at ThriftSmart, a local retail business.

“It was a rewarding experience,” said Nashville senior Rahwa Mehari. “I feel very blessed to have had the opportunity to help.”
