On Halloween ghosts and goblins are usually going door to door collecting goodies. This Halloween several dozen wayward spooky characters will be collecting trash, not candy. A group of USU students, called the Huntsman Scholars have adopted a section of 1000 West, also known as Route 252. The students from the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business report they have decided to launch a two-year service project on Halloween in costume.Huntsman Scholars are students benefiting from scholarships funded by Utah businessman and philanthropist Jon M. Huntsman. In 2007 Huntsman gave $25 million to the then College of Business and some of that money has bee invested in helping students get hands-on experience in the global marketplace they will soon be entering.Huntsman Scholars have met with business, community and academic leaders in Europe, Asia and South America, and now they are looking for ways to give effective service in Cache Valley. The group has committed to adopting a two-mile portion of 10th West for two years which means tomorrow won’t be the last time the students are picking up trash.
