Golden Key plans
cleanup to make
campus spotless

IyPIt Clo-


Have you ever seen trash
laying around campus and
thought, “Somebody else will
pick it up."

Now someone is.

The Golden Key National
Honor Society is sponsoring
the Clean Up Campus project
on this Saturday to pick up
trash on or near campus.

Groups will be assigned
sections of campus (via color-
coded maps) for which they
will be responsible. The
busiest areas of campus will
be targeted. such as the Stu-
dent Center and main walk-
ways. Otf-campus areas, such
as Virginia and Transcript
avenues. will also be covered.

"We wanted to do it in
conjunction with the Univer-
sity maintenance crew, but
we had trouble reaching
them,“ said Heidi Downes,
president of the Golden Key
National Honor Society.

The activities begin at
11 am. outside the UK Book-
store. Teams will be expect-
ed to clean up their section
of campus and meet back at
the bookstore at a designat-
ed time with trash bags in

The project isn‘t expect-
ed to take much longer than
an hour. but the more people
who show up, the quicker it
will be finished. Downes

vided. but participants are en-

couraged to bring their own

Some student organiza-
tions have already said they‘ll
participate in the project.

Alpha Kappa Psi business
fraternity is participating is
because it's always looking
for ways to increase its cam»
pus involvement. said Bryan
Kraemer, president of the fra—
ternity. Kraemer said he
plans to bring at least 20 peo-
ple to help participate.

Many students are start-
ing to notice the litter that
has been deposited on UK‘s

Animal science freshman
’I‘raver Davney said he thinks
the project will help remedy
the trash problem at UK.

“I would like to see more
cleanup going on," Davney
said. “I’m sick of seeing trash
laying around campus."

Rick Roth, the honor soci-
ety‘s adviser and an associate
professor in integrated strate-
gic communications, said he
wanted Clean Up Campus to
be a cooperative event.

"I’m not only interested
in cleaning up UK's campus.
but I‘m also interested in get-
ting other student organiza-
tions to become more in-
volved on campus," Roth

All organizations or in-
dividuals interested should
call Heidi Downes at 271-
4946, or e-mail her at
