LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

For more than 60 area college students, 8 a.m. came early.

"Yeah very much so, especially since it's so cold outside," Volunteer Monica McGee said.

A cold morning, but these students they came on a mission, a mission to help improve the lives of residents at Paul's Project at Grace Campus.

These students are Terry Scholars, from Texas Tech and other schools across West Texas, coming together to make a difference in the community.

"We did it last weekend, and this weekend as well. Just to give back, and hopefully invest in the long-term future of the residents out here," said Volunteer Stephen Perry.

Serving the residents breakfast, fixing a fence, teaching them interview skills, and giving them blessing bags, all part of the effort for these Terry Scholars.

"We rely on groups like this," Executive Director of Paul's Project, Chris Moore said. "It's always a huge blessing when we get any group from Tech, or any other group that comes out. The cool thing is that our residents see that there are people that care about them and want to help out."

And that's what the Terry Scholars pride themselves on, giving back to the community.

"How we want to help our community, because one of our slogans is to give back. So that's something we all want to do, is to give back," McGee said.
