Local News

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) – Students at Morningside College are celebrating the college’s past by thinking of the future.

The 2019 graduating class at Morningside is marking the school’s 125th anniversary by making a time capsule. 

Some items for the capsule include Morningside memorabilia including a poster from the championship football season, as well as a newspaper.

“It’s really cool, because you don’t really think about it, and then when you’re put in the perspective of you need to get it. We were just like had a few ideas that we wanted to represent Morningside College, that’s kind of all we thought. Then we actually put our heads together and we did something, and it was crazy and so fun to just think of all the things that represent our time now.” said senior Kayla Kirchhoff
