The senior citizens living at the Portage County Health Care Center will wake up to a surprise Tuesday Morning thanks to UW-Stevens Point students.

On Monday evening more than 20 students arrived to deck the halls with boughs of holly in hopes of spreading holiday joy. It’s a tradition the university has organized for the last 15 years for the residents.

“I like to be able to interact with the community,” explained Haley Dunn who is a senior studying education at UW-Stevens Point. “In the field of education, you are not only teaching the students but interacting with their families.”

Most residents were in their rooms by the time the students started decorating, but a few stayed up to reminisce.
