I learned that the SUU Honors You program did not have the funding needed to continue for the next year. I set out to raise the money needed using multiple forms of fundraising including: letter writing, asking companies for donations, and a photography fundraiser.
SUU Honors You is a program that helps show kids, typically in low-income families, from our local elementary schools the importance of their education and that they can go to college if they want to. It brings the students to Southern Utah University’s campus and has college students and professors create activities for the elementary students that engages them and shows then that college fun and important.
I figured this would be a great project to do for my EDGE project. The EDGE program at Southern Utah University helps students plan a project that helps them achieve a personal or professional goal. This project was something that was dear to my heart because I believe that SUU Honors You is a very important program.
