MOREHEAD, Ky. (WTVQ) – Morehead State University announced their Student Government Association (SGA) will put on their Iron Eagle Challenge Friday, March 29.
The Iron Eagle Challenge is a community service event that challenges the student body to complete 24 hours of consecutive service.
The event is scheduled to begin Friday at 9 a.m. and run until 9 a.m. Saturday.
Andrew Sexton, SGA vice president of campus involvement, said, “The ultimate goal of this event is to have individuals that volunteer and participate fall in love with service so that they can exercise the lifestyle in their future and lead others into doing community service as well.”
The event is split up into three, eight-hour portions and will benefit several local non-profits.
Students who contribute 18 hours of service will receive a medal, recognition at SGA’s Student Choice Awards on April 24 and induction into the Order of the Iron Eagle. Those who contribute 24 hours get the same accolades and induction into the Order of the Golden Eagle.
