Driessen Fellow Organizes Litter Cleanup at Historic Cemetery

CFACT students were recently back out improving the planet with another litter cleanup. Driessen Fellow HaiAn Hoang from University of Houston Downtown organized a group of youth to clean uptrash at the Dawson-Lunnon cemetery located in the Bayou City.

Half a dozen students took part in the project which resulted in the removal of a dozen bags of garbage. This graveyard is a state historical site. It’s a black cemetery dating to the mid nineteenth century when a freedman bought seven and a half acres which would eventually become the Dawson-Lunnon cemetery that is known today.
