Down and Dirty

The men of Phi Sigma Kappa fraternity at Northeastern State University hosted Mud on the Tires on Sept. 8. The event raised over $1,000 toward the fraternity's philanthropy, Special Olympics. NSU sororities donated to the cause and competed for the title of Mud on the Tires Champions by participating in a dodge ball game, an obstacle course and tug of war. The Delta Zetas swept the competition, winning all three events and were named the 2010 champions.

Pros for Africa

Pros for Africa

Sister Rosemary Nyirumbe of the St. Monica's Girls Tailoring Centre in Gulu, Uganda, and East Central University President John Hargrave embrace after he named her an honorary alumna of ECU. Sister Rosemary spent Wednesday [SEPT. 29] at ECU visiting with students, faculty and staff about the work she does through the Tailoring Centre, which is supported by the Whitten-Newman Foundation’s Pros for Africa. She works with displaced women who have lost their childhood, dignity and families as a result of being kidnapped by soldiers, used as sex slaves by Ugandan rebels and becoming mothers at an early age. Some of the young girls also were child soldiers, ordered to kill their friends and relatives. There is also a movement to nominate Sister Rosemary for the Nobel Peace Prize. Those wishing to help nominate her or learn more about her work in Uganda can visit www.helpstmonica.org.
