TUSCALOOSA, Ala.—The Athletic Community Environment demonstrated the power of volunteer work when they refurbished a recreational facility for the Douglas Moore community this past summer.
Luke Kiszla, a sophomore majoring in history with a minor in theater at The University of Alabama from Mobile, Ala., was one of several ACE students working on the project. The group tore up and repaved two tennis courts along with a baseball batting cage in the blistering Alabama heat.
“We’re really looking to inspire following classes and the rest of the community to help pitch in and help us realize this goal of this beautiful recreational facility we have in mind,” Kiszla explained. “Right now, since we’re not able to really achieve it all ourselves or bring it up in these three weeks, we’re really hoping that this will inspire the rest to continue the work to give this community what it needs and deserves.”
