President Donald Trump publicly recognized a group of Liberty University students during the Faith & Freedom Coalition’s Road to the Majority annual conference in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday.
The eight students, who are a part of the LU Send NOW disaster relief initiative, traveled to Tulsa, Okla. to help rebuild communities.
In May, Tulsa suffered from flooding, as well as tornadoes. Many homes were damaged.
LU Send NOW partnered with Samaritan’s Purse to get Tulsa homes “contractor ready” and aided in the removal of debris, nails, carpeting, damaged flooring, and drywall. They also helped local homeowners find personal possessions.
President Trump asked the students to stand so attendees could recognize them. The conference goers applauded the group.
