Arkansas Tech Students Recognized for Service

Two Arkansas Tech University groups have been recognized by a local elementary school for their exceptional service.

Both the Society of Professional Journalists and the Arkansas Tech Wonder Boys football team were honored with the Golden Star Award for donating significant service to Oakland Heights Elementary School.

Members of the Society of Professional Journalists have volunteered at the school to open car doors one morning each week for the past two years. As part of their service, the Tech students greet the children and help them get to the proper location before classes begin.

Members of the Arkansas Tech University football team have served as mentors at the school. Over the course of several years, the players have volunteered their time to participate in reading, assist with homework and play with the students on the playground.
