Me & a classmate in our safety vests waiting for the next collection.

This past Saturday some of the students from my class joined members of the National Guard and helped collect expired drugs that people wanted to get rid of.

We helped at the Pleasant Hill Fire department for 4 hours. There were pills upon pills delivered to us that are now out of the homes of local residents.

There is a new trend in our society of parties where drugs are passed that teens found in their medicine cabinets. Many kids die from this and to be a part of getting those drugs out of the houses and putting a small dent into stopping these deaths was worth our time.


Daley Dodd was born and raised in the little ol’ town of Newton, IA. Growing up involved sports, dance, clubs and anything under the sun that could keep the family busy. This busy bee life flowed over into her college years at Northwest Missouri State University. She was a member of the Northwest Dance team, taught dance at a local studio, a member of Alpha Sigma Alpha Sorority and involved in Campus Crusade for Christ (CCC). After college Daley journeyed on over to Europe and had the time of her life. While there she worked for CCC and got to experience new cultures, foods and people. After a year abroad her cravings for American food got the best of her and she came home. After living in Nebraska a year she decided to jump back on the school ship and came to DMU. She has loved her experience here so far and can’t wait for everything to come.
