Three of Texas Wesleyan's Hatton W. Sumners Scholars delivered needed toiletries and cleaned up the yard of a homebound senior in East Fort Worth on Saturday, March 21, prior to Tarrant County's stay-at-home order. Donning masks, seniors Stuart Tennyson, Bailey Dozier and Emilia Egel spent the morning cutting grass, trimming branches and providing general assistance.  

Hatton W. Sumners Scholars are required to perform acts of community service and according to these students, "our most vulnerable populations always need a helping hand, even if it requires safety precautions like masks and social distancing."
