The children of Inskip Elementary School are a little warmer today thanks to the generous donations of the Dean’s Staff Advisory Board (DSAB) in the College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences.
Staff throughout the college gathered new and gently used coats, headbands, scarves, gloves and toboggan caps for the children of Inskip Elementary. Many times, these items are the extras that parents just can’t afford or items children have sometimes lost. The DSAB wanted to make things a little easier and ensure that their children could be warm throughout the chillier days.
The DSAB is comprised of a representative from each of the eight major departments and also includes representatives from centers, grants, and programs throughout the college. This is the second such donation of needed items that the board has gathered and donated to Inskip Elementary. In the past, the board has gathered office supplies and Christmas items for donation to South Knox Elementary School.
Representatives attending the donation today included Wade McGarity, Educational Leadership and Policy Studies, Kayla Jones, Board Chairperson, from the Dean’s Administrative Staff, and Bonnie Maples, Co-Chairperson, from the college’s Office of Marketing & Communications. The children who so joyfully helped us in receiving the items and being our models included: Elijah Walker, Aliyah Helms, Eliyah Newton & Roseanne Layne.
