Brandon Allen and Amonté Martin

Brandon Allen and Amonté Martin (both Department of Youth Development and Agricultural Education): Brandon Allen and Amonté Martin, both graduate students in the Department of Youth Development and Agricultural Education, started a bottled water drive to help the citizens of Flint, Michigan. The two drove five hours to Flint with more than 250 cases of water and 30 one-gallon jugs of water donated by the Purdue community. In addition to the water donations, they received $500 in contributions, which they used to purchase more water for distribution in Flint. The College of Agriculture is very proud of and grateful to Brandon and Amonté. They made a real difference and set an example for us all. -- Jay Akridge (College of Agriculture)
