Tarleton volunteers prove a ‘Good Neighbor’ on Friday the 13th

STEPHENVILLE (July 17, 2018) — Tarleton State University students brought of bit of good luck to one Stephenville resident on Friday, July 13, when they started clearing storm debris from his property on the corner of Frey and Harbin streets.

Covered in downed tree limbs from late February’s ice storm, the property was considered an eyesore by residents who didn’t know the owner has medical issues and little money for cleanup.

The cleanup is part of the Division of Student Affairs’ Good Neighbor initiative under the direction of Darrell Brown, executive director of Community Outreach and Fraternity and Sorority Life.

Members of the Tarleton State University Texan football team rolled up their sleeves Friday, July 13, to clear debris and downed tree limbs from the yard of a Stephenville resident. The effort was part of the Division of Student Affairs’ Good Neighbor initiative, a program designed to develop and promote positive relationships among Tarleton students and the community.

“Tarleton is proud to be in Stephenville, and we recognize the importance of working together on important initiatives to keep our community looking nice,” Brown said.

Members of the Tarleton Texan football team volunteered to do the heavy lifting with some help from the city of Stephenville.

“Student Affairs is committed to developing and promoting a positive relationship with Stephenville and its residents,” Brown said. “The Good Neighbor effort is just another way Tarleton can show its appreciation for being part of the city and Erath County.”

The initiative also focuses on helping commuter students effectively engage the community and exhibit Tarleton’s core values as residents. Brown will release an Off-Campus Living Guide later this summer.
