MMC Mission Day

Service to others and to community both locally and on a national level was the focus of yesterday’s Mission Day event at Mount Marty College.

Events Coordinator Wyatt Yager says through the investment of their time and effort in these service projects the students receive experiences in return that will benefit them in the years to come.

President Marc Long says the Helping Hands for Houston collection which gathered hundreds of pounds of supplies for victims of Hurricane Harvey was supported not only by Mount Marty students but by individuals and businesses throughout the Yankton community.

Long says students at the school have embraced Mission Day as an event that is important to their time here in Yankton.
