Geography Club Paints Playground Map

Geography Club Paints Playground Map

This past weekend, the Geography Club painted a U.S. map on the playground at Pickett Elementary School in St. Joseph.

The Playground Map Project is possible through the generous support of the Lowe’s Hometown Heroes Program, the Student Government Association, Dunkin Donuts of St. Joseph, and donations from Missouri Western students, staff, and faculty to the Playground Map Project Fund. Last year, the club painted a map at Hyde Elementary in St. Joseph.

If other schools or organizations are interested in partnering with Geography Club to receive a playground map, they can contact Dr. Dawn Drake at 816-271-4161 or
