Mock Convention partnered up with Nabors Service Day on Saturday to help give back to the local community.

   Nabors Service Day is a bi-annual, community-wide service day hosted by the W&L’s Nabors Service League. NSL is named after Jonathan Nabors, a W&L student who was killed in a car accident in 1999 when returning to school after Christmas Break.

  Jacqueline Carson, ’16, Mock Convention’s Service Coordinator and Nabors Service League President, said the partnership was aimed to give back to the community that provides so much support for Mock Convention every four years.

   “Hopefully the community will appreciate what we did for them because we definitely appreciate what they do for us,” Carson said.

   Mock Con members helped beautify McDowell Cemetery in Fairfield and helped pull invasive species from the trails with the Friends of Brushy Hills in the House Mountain Area.

   Catherine Roach, ’16, Utah State Chair, was one of the Mock Con members who helped at McDowell Cemetery.

   “I think it's important for Mock Con to give back because we have such a huge presence in Lexington [during Convention Weekend]," Roach said. "Also, since Mock Con is so rooted in history, I think it's important to help preserve history like we did at the cemetery today.”
