Honor Students Organization presents donations to the Jefferson County Public Library
The Jefferson County Public Library received a boost in their material after a generous donation from Alcorn State University’s Honor Students Organization.
The organization donated educational and cleaning material and supplies to the library Friday, May 26. A total of 16 individuals donated over 100 items that included pens, pencils, highlighters, notebook paper and other school supplies. Also included in the donation was a book giving the history of the University. Cleaning supplies such as toilet brushes, paper towels, laundry detergent, Clorox wipes, pine sole and much more were donated.
Brenda Rankin, branch manager for the Jefferson County Public Library, thanks the organization for always keeping them in mind.
“I am so excited about their donation, and I am honored that they chose our library as a place to donate to,” said Rankin. “We’re trying our best to keep our heads above water, so any donation that we receive is greatly appreciated.”
The library is one of a few places in the surrounding areas that Dr. Wandra Arrington, assistant director for the Honors Curriculum Program, and her students provide services for. She said that their mission is to continue to be a service to the library year around.
“The Jefferson County Library is an essential resource for youth and adults in the community, and we want to continue to support them during the fall, spring and summer months,” said Arrington. “The Office of Pre-Professional and Honors Curriculum programs continue to work to make a difference in the lives of our students and communities.”
