Forty-one students from ILLINOIS STATE University spent this morning
cleaning the grounds of Kenan's Mill
prior to the Selma Pilgrimage next weekend.
Afterward, they enjoyed a tour of the mill by Sylvia Smith
The students participated in a nine-day, six-city tour through
Students Today Leaders Forever (STLF), and Selma was their fifth stop.
Andie Williams, one of five core leaders, said STLF combines community service
with tourism during spring break, and they chose both cities and small towns to visit.
This year's tour included Memphis, Hattiesburg, Miss.; New Orleans,
Navarre Beach, Fla.; Selma and Atlanta.
While in Selma, the group visited historic sites such as Brown Chapel AME Church
and the Pettus Bridge, then stayed at St. Paul's Episcopal Church
where they were served breakfast this morning.
