SGA hosts Iron Eagle Challenge

The Iron Eagle Challenge, sponsored by the Student Government Association (SGA) of Morehead State University, is a community service event that challenges the student body to complete 24 hours of consecutive service. The event is scheduled to begin on March 29 at 9 a.m. and run until 9 a.m. of the following day.  

Andrew Sexton, SGA vice president of campus involvement, said, “The ultimate goal of this event is to have individuals that volunteer and participate fall in love with service so that they can exercise the lifestyle in their future and lead others into doing community service as well.”   

The event is split up into three, eight-hour portions. During the first eight hours, volunteers will be out in the community completing projects at several local non-profits.  The locations will include Frontier Housing, Life Care Center of Morehead and the Morehead-Rowan County Community Recycling Center.  

The second and third portions of the event will take place in Button Drill Room starting at 6 p.m. on March 29. During the last 16 hours, students will complete projects that benefit individuals outside of the local community. These projects will include writing letters to military-service men and women and making tie blankets for the Lexington Children's Hospital.  

Students that contribute 18 hours of service will receive a medal, recognition at SGA's Student Choice Awards on April 24 and induction into the Order of the Iron Eagle. Those that contribute 24 hours get the same accolades and induction into the Order of the Golden Eagle. 

Students can register to volunteer by contacting Andrew Sexton at Alternatively, students can stop by the SGA booth in the Adron Doran University Center (ADUC) from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the week of March 25 and register.
