Volunteers will meet at 9 a.m., Sept. 12 on the east side of Sikes Lake to begin part of an annual tradition — the Sikes Lake Cleanup

Jim Hensley, president of the Rolling Plains Chapter of the Texas Master Naturalists said the event is an “opportunity for groups to participate and help clean up on campus to get community service.”

He said the event is also a good way for sororities and fraternities to earn community service hours that they will need.

Portia Monson, a psychology and sociology sophomore, was at the lake last week and commented on the chairs and tires in the water.

She said cleaning up the lake is important because “people use it for working out and walking. It’s close to campus, so it’s safer.”

Ranell Earl, a nursing junior, was walking to the bank when she said she noticed a lot of trash around the lake.

“It’s a part of campus, so it’s important that it’s kept clean,” Earl said. “It’s a representation of the MSU Mustangs.”

Hensley said the event will be similar to last year’s clean up, with the same sponsors and the same people.

The Rolling Plains Chapter of the Texas Master Naturalists, American National Bank and Trust, Texas Parks and Wildlife and Midwestern State University sponsor the Sikes Lake Cleanup.
