Plantersville Civic Engagement Project (2009)
(Did not participate in 2010)

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.
