UP, UP, and AWAY!

Students celebrate National GEAR UP Week.

Seventh- and eighth-grade students from McAlester recently participated in a balloon launch to celebrate National GEAR UP Week. McAlester is one of 30 partner schools currently participating in Eastern Oklahoma State College’s GEAR UP for Success grant program. Each balloon was tied with a message listing the student’s name, grade and school, as well as their short-term and long-term educational goals. Many students received encouraging letters from people who found their balloon messages from as far away as Texas.

Did someone say...Girl Scout Cookies?

OSU-OKC students volunteer to organize Girl Scout cookies.

OSU-Oklahoma City students and staff recently volunteered at the Girl Scouts-Western Oklahoma warehouse during its bustling cookie distribution season. The volunteers spent several hours unloading pallets filled with boxes of cookies and distributing the boxes into Girl Scout Troops’ vehicles.
The volunteer service event was made possible through OSU-OKC Student Government Association’s monthly Students Organizing Service endeavor. Through the program, OSU-OKC students volunteer with various nonprofit organizations allowing them to earn service learning hours toward their degrees, while also enriching the community. Pictured are OSU-OKC student development coordinator Nate Adams with OSU-OKC students Austin Schudalla, Jonathan Schwartz and Allison Lockwood.
