On Saturday October 12, 2020, the MWSU Geography Club, with the help of volunteers from Lowes of St. Joseph and parents, teachers, and students from North Nodaway Elementary School, painted a US and a world map on the elementary school playground in Pickering, MO.

This is the fourth US map that Geography Club has installed and the first world map. Additionally, in the past year, three more US maps were installed at elementary schools in Andrew County by the staff of the Andrew County Health Department and one other US map was installed at Stewartsville Elementary school by their PTA through a loan of the stencils by Geography Club.

The MWSU Geography Club is grateful to the Student Government Association for supporting the purchase of the stencils and for Lowes of St. Joseph donating the materials for the project at North Nodaway Elementary School.
