C-SC provides more than 350 students for community service event on Saturday


CANTON, Mo. — More than 350 Culver-Stockton College students, along with Wildcat Welcome Leaders, will deploy into the Canton community on Saturday for the 13th Everyone Doing More annual service event.  

The event will begin at 9:15 a.m. in the Alexander Campbell Auditorium, where all incoming first-year students will learn the mission of service at Culver-Stockton College, the reason for EDM and the historic tether between the college and the Canton community.

The students will be commissioned by President Douglas B. Palmer to go into the community and serve. The group, consisting of approximately 350 students and 50 employees, will walk through the campus concourse, down the iconic hill and into Canton, where they will complete projects at nine locations throughout the morning. 

“EDM represents who we are at Culver-Stockton College,” Palmer shared in a press release. “It is with a purpose that our new students are led into the local community within their first days of being C-SC students, because serving others and learning by doing is a large part of our identity here.”

Palmer said this event establishes the expectation for students to become a member of the community and allows the college to show gratitude to city residents. 

This year’s EDM projects consist of landscaping, trash removal and general clean-up at parks, community centers, library, daycare, senior housing and additional city properties.
