College volleyball players recently helped put the "Community" in McCook Community College, helping a new neighbor move in to his new home.
James Foster, new administrator for Hillcrest Nursing home, and his wife had been temporarily living in a hotel while waiting to sell their home in Colby. That's where they met Assistant MCC Volleyball Coach Rick Brown, who was also living in "temporary housing" moving from Arizona in June when he started his new dual job as assistant volleyball coach and Brooks Hall Resident Life Assistant.
Over time, the Fosters not only got to meet Rick, they got to meet some of the volleyball team members.
"We were really impressed with these young ladies and how they handled themselves and interacted with each other and seemed committed to each other as a team… just good, good citizens," Foster said.
When the players found out he was finally going to be able to move in last weekend, he asked them if they might be interested in helping unload the truck when it got to town. They were.
"We're one community and the volleyball team seems to understand that," Foster said. "If you're young or old, you are one community."
"When our team got done unloading the truck, they made a generous donation to the MCC Volleyball Program," Brown said.
