A dozen EKU students spent part of their fall break helping with storm recovery in West Virginia.
The group helped shovel snow off buried houses, delivered food and water to victims without electricity and helped clear debris so first responders could reach remote areas in Tucker County, W. Va.
"This is our first real break since we got here in August and started school. These people, who sacrificed their time from their families to serve the county in West Virginia, just applause to them. They're the true heroes," Dan Kirstein said.
Madison County residents and the EKU community helped out, donating rescue gear, shovels and an ATV.
