Student Athletes Help at Old Threshers Reunion

From August 24 - September 2, IWC athletes volunteered over 1,584 hours helping with Mt. Pleasant’s Old Threshers Reunion.


The Tigers worked a variety of jobs, including ticket gates, directing traffic, setting up, tearing down, and staffing food booths, setting up performance stages, working the lights, and picking up litter.


“We were very pleased with the role the student-athletes played in helping this event run smoothly,” said Old Threshers CEO Lennis Moore. “It was very nice to see the purple and white on our grounds working alongside other volunteers.”
