Oklahoma Tornado Victims Get Help From Embry-Riddle
Daytona Beach, FL, June 5, 2013
The Embry-Riddle community came together recently in the wake of deadly tornados that struck Oklahoma. Two Embry-Riddle students, Alistair Connell and Zach Laurie, along with Eduardo Prieto, associate vice president of admissions, all pitched in to help clean up tornado debris and deliver food in Moore, Okla.
In addition, Embry-Riddle sports marketing and promotions intern Lindsay Waters organized the collection of eight large boxes of clothing donated by staff, coaches and departments.
Their efforts are detailed in an article (57KB PDF) by the Daytona Beach News-Journal.
