Abilene Students Help Keep Highway Clean

Abilene Kappa PsiEpsilon Tau, the Kappa Psi student organization chapter for the Abilene campus, participated in an Adopt-a-Highway cleanup on Aug. 25. 

Third-year pharmacy student Justin F. Langreck, MPH, said 21 volunteers were involved in the chapter’s effort, which included the removal of 24 bags of trash, several discarded tires and other large items from a two-mile stretch of State Highway 351.

“We are proud to be a part of the Adopt-a-Highway program and to have our organization’s name displayed on a Texas highway, Langreck said. “Most importantly, we are glad that we are able to regularly participate in something that makes our community a better place.”
