I is for ILLINOIS STATE

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.   

Linking to ABC Wednesday
where the letter of the week is "I."

That sounds more worthwhile a way to spend a break than the beach.
