M State -- Wadena students helping to build community

College students in Wadena are building their skills at the same time that they're helping their community rebuild.

The dozen students are enrolled in the Carpentry Science program on the Wadena campus of M State, which is taught by Dave Kraemer. After the June 17 tornado wiped out entire neighborhoods in his community, Kraemer said he and other college officials saw an opportunity to make a lasting impact in the recovery.
