TTU Flood Victims Receive Help

Tennessee Tech University students, who were flooded out of their homes on Sept. 7, are being treated to $150 VISA gift cards by El Tapatio Mexican Restaurant. The cards can be used for the purchase of anything the students may need to replace what was lost in the flood. The restaurant dedicated 20 percent of its Sept. 22 sales to help the students, several of whom lost everything they own including their cars. About 20 TTU students have received help so far through a communitywide donation effort coordinated by the Student Activities Office, University Service Center and Fitness Center.
