The Tusculum College Bonner Leader Program is hosting the first annual Fall Festival on Friday, Oct. 25, from 5 to 10 p.m.
All the proceeds from the event will to go Baileyton Elementary School to help renovate their playground.
According to Ashley Shipley, Center for Civic Advancement and Bonner Leader coordinator at the college, “We are currently getting community vendors and Tusculum sport teams, clubs and organizations to help make this event successful.”
Additionally, donations are still being sought for cakes for a cake walk. If you are interested in donating cakes for the Fall Festival, please contact Shipley at 423-636-7300, extension 5252 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Donations would be greatly appreciated.
In the Bonner Leaders Program, students work through a community-based organization or agency to provide a minimum of 100 service hours per semester. These students have chosen to be in this program because of their interest in service, and by fulfilling all the requirements they are eligible for a tuition award.
As a group, the Bonner Leaders at Tusculum College are leading the way for a more integral and civically engaged student-body. Through diverse service activity offerings and both small and large scale projects, Bonners has established its position within Tusculum as well as Greene County.
