Northwestern Football Helps Community - April 30, 2010

The Northwestern Oklahoma State University football team gave back to the Alva community for their support, by participating in “The Big Event” on April 10, 2010.

Eighty-five Ranger football players spent approximately one hour planting 65 trees at the Alva Rec. Complex. The trees will benefit the Alva Rec. Complex and the community.

“The Big Event” is a nationally recognized function with the purpose to strengthen the relationship between the university and the communities it serves while creating positive change. This event offers the opportunity for student organizations, faculty and staff to work together on a wide variety of projects to better the university and community.

Earlier this semester, Ranger football players Ray Grubbs (Kenner, La.) and Kyle Jech (Kingfisher, Okla.) spoke to the First Baptist Church at Fort Supply. The duo talked to students at a Youth Banquet about staying on course in life and making decisions concerning school, work, and relationships.
