Paul Morrison, a beloved member of the Drake family, had a tradition of picking up trash in the Drake neighborhood. Every day, throughout his life, when Paul walked to and from campus and through his neighborhood, he would stop and pick up any piece of trash he saw. This was a part of his commitment to making Drake a better place for everyone. Paul is also known for his love of the Drake Relays and his commitment to always making it better for those who came after him. This event combines Paul’s love for the Relays, and his tradition of picking up trash around campus and the neighborhood. This year, the Paul Morrison Spruce-Up Day will be Saturday, April 17th, 2021. At this event, neighbors and students will remember Paul’s Legacy while sprucing up our neighborhood. Special guests may be present! A snack and all supplies will be provided.
