48 students inducted into the Order of the Iron and Golden Eagle

The Iron Eagle Challenge, sponsored by Morehead State University's Student Government Association (SGA), is a community service event that challenges the student body to complete 24 hours of consecutive service.  

By the end of the event, 20 tie blankets were made and donated to the Lexington Children’s Hospital; 50 letters of appreciation were written to military service men and woman; over 100 sheets of coloring book pages with puffy paint outlines were made for visually impaired children so they can color inside the lines and over 105,000 grains of rice were raised through Collectively, the efforts of every student equaled 1,422 hours and 45 minutes of service.  

Students that contributed 18 hours of service received a medal, recognition at SGA's Student Choice Awards and induction into the Order of the Iron Eagle. Those that contributed 24 hours received the same accolades and induction into the Order of the Golden Eagle.
