FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Blue Mountain Community College students were part of a Umatilla County Fairgrounds clean up project to prepare for the fair. Four students from the Student Ambassador program and two Phi Theta Kappa national honor society members beat the heat and washed fair signs as a community service.

"These leadership projects prepare students for the work world," said advisor Anne Livingston, "and to become involved citizens in their communities. Besides, as fair participants we need to prepare the facility for visitors."
