Honor students give donations to Jefferson County Library
On Thursday, May 26, Alcorn State University honor students donated their unused educational materials and supplies to the Jefferson County Public Library in Fayette, Mississippi. Honor student, Michael Hurns, and assistant Honors director, Dr. Wandra Arrington, presented the Library Branch Manager, Brenda Rankin, with the donations for the library’s children.
Thirteen Honor students donated 97 packs of educational materials and supplies which consisted of pens, pencils, markers, notebook paper, tablets, legal pads, folders, binders, index dividers, sheet protectors, index cards, pencils and card cases, erasers, post it notes and rulers to the library. Alcorn’s honor students have volunteered at the Jefferson County Public Library on many program activities over the years.
Arrington, who also serves as HSO advisor said, “We are aware that during the summer months, a lot of local centers and programs are unable to provide essential supplies for youth educational activities. That’s why the honor students are donating the necessary resources to continue students’ learning throughout the summer months.”
“The Office of Pre-Professional and Honors Curriculum Programs continue to support our local communities’ youth, which in turn, aids in the successful development of our future leaders.”
