April: New Officers Training and Planning
During the fall semester, programs and service projects centered around childhood obesity prevention with speakers and an educational program for about 75 children as a part of a community outreach program of a local church. Two speakers gave presentations to KON members and invited guests.
During the spring semester, the KON members completed a grant funded Anti-Bullying program which was launched by participating in the Black Out Bullying Day (a national initiative)and asking all faculty, staff and students to join them by wearing black and being kind one to another on that day. KON members and invited participants viewed the AAFCS Bullying Webinar with follow-up discussion. A speaker from a local high school spoke to the members on high school bullying and programs to reduce or eliminate the problem. To end the year, the members conducted a "Be Kind" program to 40 students in a local after school program. The final meeting was new officer training and program planning for the coming year.
3. Tentative plans for next year
The new officers selected Prosperity for their program speakers. Speakers were identified from the Hunger Coalition of Arkansas, Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families, Head Start, a local homeless shelter and a local domestic violence shelter.
Head Start was selected for our service projects, with the Education theme of social responsibility. In the fall semester, the members will host a campus-wide drive for children's books to be donated to the Head Start Lending Library for White County. In the spring semester, as a part of a University-wide day of service (Bisons Day), the members will go to one or more of the local Head Start centers to help the teachers with lessons and do any cleaning projects needed inside and outside the facilities.
