School of Education Supports Student Leaders!
The School of Education Team “Cool Cats/Hats” participated for the second year in the Turkey Trot annual fundraiser and this year brought home (to the office) two coveted awards! The Office of Community Engagement and Student Programs once again organized a “Turkey Trot” to benefit Lehman L.I.F.E. (Leaders Involved For Everyone). All proceeds provide students with travel scholarships to help communities in need in Florida, Dominican Republic, Honduras, India and Nicaragua.
The School of Education won both the “Greatest Fundraiser” award and the “First Place Team” spirit award (with a gold turkey on top). And thanks to donations from Buildings and Grounds, we also won two frozen turkeys, which were immediately donated to the POTS community dining room. More >>
