Students assisted Plantersville in carrying
out some of the goals and objectives identified in the
Plantersville Playbook for Action 2014the
strategic plan for community development that the MSU ATP
graduate students of 2008 assisted the town in developing.
Specifically, they worked with the community leaders (mayor and
aldermen) to help with some of the broad goals identified in the
strategic plan. The ATP project engaged the community through
community-based efforts to address the following objectives: to
establish a town event to help community members become more
involved, to hold an annual prayer breakfast or community
service, to have better communication about town meetings and
problems, and to create an educational support center in the
Plantersville Community Center.
