To honor the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., 15 students from the University of Alabama spent the holiday at Morning Pointe of Tuscaloosa (AL). This trip was a service opportunity offered to UA freshmen through the university’s Center for Service and Leadership. Over the course of the day, the students cleaned out the assisted living and Alzheimer’s memory care community’s storage shed and even participated in the residents’ morning exercise routine.
“The residents were so grateful to have the students’ help and loved exercising with them. They can’t wait for them to come back!” exclaims Karla Barksdale, the Life Enrichment Director at Morning Pointe of Tuscaloosa. “Thank you so much, UA! You are great!”
