Fighting Eagles Cadets Keep Stretch of Highway 904 Clean of Litter

This month Cadets from the Eastern Washington University (EWU) Reserve Officer Training Program (ROTC) Fighting Eagle Battalion continued its participation in the Adopt-A-Highway program sponsored by the Washington State Department of Transportation.  On November 7, 2020 the Cadets cleaned a section of Lt. Col. Michael P. Anderson Memorial Highway of debris and litter. The section of the road, also known as Highway 904, is located just north of Cheney in Four Lakes.

The Cadets woke up early Saturday morning, donned their safety equipment, and drove to Four Lakes to begin the clean up.  The group then spread out over both sides of the highway to pick up any garbage they saw. Whether it was litter on the road or bulk garbage, EWU ROTC Cadets spent the next couple of hours cleaning up any trash in sight.

Despite the chilly weather the Cadets ended the clean up in high spirits by helping keep the roadside through Four Lakes clean.  The Fighting Eagles battalion looks forward to continuing its partnership with the Washington State Department of Transportation to maintain the cleanliness of this busy stretch highway for the local community
