Saipan Tribune: NMC Nursing Club Cares For Our Island (December 11, 2014)

The Northern Mariana College Nursing Club turned its care and attention to a new beneficiary last month, participating in the Marianas Visitors Authority’s “Beautify My Marianas” campaign to help improve the island environment. Sixteen members of the club cleaned a two-mile strip of the beach in Susupe, facing rainy conditions and filling a pickup truckload with trash ranging from beer cans to plastic debris and cardboard.

“Along the beach there was only one trash bin available, but it too was rusted and broken at the bottom. The trash was scattered around the bin and not actually in the bin,” said the club in their post-cleanup report. “We believe that one or more signs should be put up indicating the fines for littering. More trash bins that aren’t falling apart need to be implemented, especially in the beach area around the [restaurant] establishment. We picked up a great amount of beer cans and beer bottles there.

The “Beautify My Marianas” program offers $100 for each mile cleaned up in assigned areas.

Cleanup participants were Byung Kwan Ohn, Allison Madamba, Mayleen Aldan, Maria Atrero, Evangelina Manalili, Andrew Villanueva, Seung Jun Cha, Rosher Apolinar, Lealynn Valdez, Marianne Ejercito, Peachy Quitugua, Maritoni Raganot, Michael Hidalgo, Gemmilie Eugenio, Cristine Ocampo, and Imari Feria.
