Make a Difference Day

Members of both the Elementary Education Mathematics Club and the Mathematics Club woke up early on Make a Difference Day and headed to Sandy Knoll Elementary School as well as a community member's home to rake leaves for the day.

Make a Difference Day was truly a wonderful way for our club to give back to the community of Marquette.
