When the cast and crew of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition descended upon Joplin this past week to start the popular television show’s project to build seven houses in seven days in the tornado-ravaged community, they found thousands of volunteers ready and waiting to assist.

Among those volunteers Thursday night, were Fulton mother-and-daughter team Linda and Whitney Davis.

The Davises spent 8 p.m. Thursday until 2 a.m. Friday working on various projects on the Extreme Makeover sites, returning home to Fulton in time for a full workday on Friday — Linda Davis as a professor of management systems at William Woods University, and Whitney Davis as a kindergarten teacher at Bush Elementary School. Despite the long hours of work and dearth of sleep caused by the working field trip were well worth it.
