Springfield students return to Joplin for resilience project

Updated:

Students from Drury University in Springfield make a return to Joplin for a resilience project.  

The group wants to commemorate the heroism, courage, and resilience of Joplin area residents.  The students will take people's stories and transcribe them on large story boards at Cunningham Park.  More than 25 students are taking part, and say they are inspired by stories they've heard.

"It's a thought that never leaves my mind.  I'm a survivor, but it's never going to go away," says tornado survivor John Degraff.

It's really powerful.  It's not something I can relate to.  It's amazing to see it and at least to be a small part of it," says Drury student Joshua Anderson.

The group expects the story boards to be on display sometime in November.
