OTA Students Dig in at Entrance to City, Locke House

OTA Students Help Make City Shine

East Liverpool Mayor Ryan Stovall caught up with OTA students

Students from Kent State East Liverpool’s occupational therapy assistant program gathered at the downtown entrance ramp to the city to help spruce up the “serpentine” landscape of that area by pulling weeds, trimming shrubs, raking mulch and picking up litter.

They joined efforts with the East Liverpool-Calcutta Garden Club members, who maintain that area of the city’s landscape.

Once finished, the students walked to The Locke House and cleaned up the landscaping and lawn at that location.
