Faculty and students lead fund raising effort

Professors David Leonard and Rich King from the department of Comparative Ethnic Studies lead a group of 50 volunteers who collected money for the Operation Good Samaritan Fund at the WSU/Grambling State game in Seattle on Sept. 17.

Their effort was supported by a group from the Katrina relief task force, Melanie Brown, director of the Community Service Learning Center, Rene Scourey, vice president of the WSU Foundation, Mary Gresch associate vice president, Tena Old, director of Strategic Initiatives, and John David Wicker of the Athletic Department.

The volunteers were a diverse group coming from CES courses, black Greek letter organizations at WSU and the University of Washington, some local high school students, and community members from Seattle. In addition, a group of interns from the Community Service Learning Center drove over from Pullman the morning of the football game to assist in the cause.

The volunteers’ dedication to the cause made the project a success.
