CoT students part of new Oaken Bucket tradition
BCM student Bryan Morris leads the final leg of the Oaken Bucket Relay to deliver the game ball to Coach Danny Hope.
The Old Oaken Bucket football game ball made a 110-mile trip from Bloomington to West Lafayette Nov. 27, courtesy of the Purdue Veterans Organization and ROTC students from Purdue and Indiana universities.
Bryan Morris, a student in the Department of Building Construction Management, and Stephen Schmid, a student in the Department of Aviation Technology, were organizers of the game-day ball relay. The event raised money for Operation Bedding. The organization provides comforts of home to military personnel in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The event brought in $1,100 in cash donations, Morris said. They are still waiting for final numbers for online donations.
Tony Clevinger, an aviation technology major, also participated in the run.
