Community Service with Sigma Tau Delta
We work closely with Dr. Allen Pierce (a professor in English) who has founded the Community Literacy Outreach Initiative (CLOI). Last spring, we read Dr. Seuss books to the children at Hawkins Elementary School with members of CLOI (see left). I read to a class of mildly attentive first-graders, who seemed to appreciate our willingness to participate in their day of Dr. Seuss fun. Sigma Tau Delta also hosted a Benefit concert at the Baptist Student Union last Spring and raise over a hundred dollars for CLOI.
I am most excited, though, about the community service opportunities we have coming up this year. We are working with Better World Books to collect textbooks for there organization. We are also planning on working with Sacred Heart High School, and Presbyterian Christian High School to offer free tutoring services to English Students.
