K-STATE SALINA STUDENTS HELP WICHITA FAMILY WITH 'EXTREME MAKEOVER'

SALINA -- They won't be the stars of the show, but several students from Kansas State University at Salina helped with the recent "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" build in Wichita.

The ABC television show selected the Carl Hall family of Wichita as the recipient of a home. The episode is scheduled to air in May.

"Most of the student volunteers spent the day painting various projects for the inside of the home, such as cabinetry, wall decorations and furniture. Some of the students worked on finishing a miniature basketball court," said Shelby Meyer, sophomore in family studies and human services, Gypsum, who coordinated the volunteer group.

"This episode was the final show for designer Paul DiMeo. In his honor there was a special segment that some Kappa Sigma Alpha sorority members were selected to take part in," said Morgan Miles, junior in general business administration, Salina. "We got to meet Paul and his replacement."

Other students that participated included:

Amanda Johnson, sophomore in applied business, Augusta; Shawn Hastings, sophomore in professional pilot, Berryton.

From Salina: Jessica Crites, sophomore in family studies and human services; Megan Hanson, sophomore in animal sciences and industry; and Kayla Matt, sophomore in family studies and human services.

Antonio Hearn, senior in engineering technology, Stafford.

From out of state: Kenny Ham, senior in engineering technology, Watauga, Texas.
