parks and rec 300GREENVILLE, Ky. (6/12/18) — When Muhlenberg County Parks and Recreation personnel recently reached out to Muhlenberg Job Corps for help cleaning up a lake connected with park property, 20 students and heavy equipment operator instructors responded to the call.

The students and instructors, using MJCC equipment, removed trees and brush from around the lake, drained the lake down 4 - 6 inches and put in a spillway to prevent the water from getting too high flooding the baseball fields. The next phase of the project will involve cleaning and rough grading a walking trail from the adjacent land and wrapping the trail around the lake. 

"The students have done an excellent job," said heavy equipment operator instructor John Austin, who has been on site throughout the project. "They have not only worked hard, but they have showed exceptional social and employability skills in working with community members and visitors to the site." 

MJCC students working on the project included Shon Akins, Dustin Balzer, Jaquna Bell, Logan Harrison, Nikolas Ligons, Jacob Stage, Euries Williams, Allen Woodman, Dareaun Banks, Edgar Cruz, Joshua Devivo, Anthony Fortner, Dominique Johnson, Nathaniel Johnson, Jazmin Lowery, Eddie Morales, Charles Munson, Marcus Schrecengost, Johnnie Shepherd and Paul Sherwood.
