Campus Champion

“Stop and Drop” boxes with yellow ribbons are located around campus as part of a service project coordinated by Tau Sigma, the honor society for transfer students, to collect items for U.S. troops. “Let’s care for those who serve,” says Tau Sigma Vice President LaJoie Ward. LaJoie is all about serving those in need. Last fall she helped Tau Sigma coordinate Operation Christmas Child, filling shoeboxes with gifts for children overseas, and she is a volunteer with the College’s Transfer Buddy Program, reaching out to new transfers at the start of each semester. The senior childhood/English major is a champion for those in need.
