Fort Scott Community College students and faculty showed their appreciation to members of the community through their Community Appreciation Day Thursday, providing a free lunch to those who came.
“We truly appreciate all that they do for us,” President Alysia Johnston said of the community’s support for the college. “And we just wanted to give back in a small way.”
Johnston said they enjoyed the opportunity to host members of the community, who received a free lunch as well as a tour of the Gordon Parks Museum and the chance to speak with college faculty. Members of local businesses and organizations and even city leaders attended the Community Appreciation Day.
