seed to host first event
“Dancing with the Faculty” will raise money for one of Morehead State University’s newest student organization, SEED (Students Empowering Exceptional inDividuals), Tuesday, March 27. The event will be held in Reed Hall Auditorium (room 419) at 7 p.m.
The event will enlighten the campus community about the student organization which consists of successful MSU students who have various types of disabilities. Beginning in the fall, SEED students will host events on campus, mentoring middle school and high school students who share the same type of disability (college student with a learning disability would be matched with a younger student with a learning disability, two students who are blind, etc.).
The group’s goal is to give advice and encouragement, while serving as role models to someone younger who might otherwise count him/herself out of going to college.
President Wayne D. Andrews, along with faculty from various departments, will pair with students to choose their own style of dance and music. Currently, eight teams have registered.
Advance tickets are $3 and can be purchased from Evangeline Day, disabilities service coordinator. On Monday, March 26, and Tuesday, March 27, SEED will sell advance tickets from 11 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. on the second floor of the Adron Doran University Center.
Faculty and staff, who cannot attend, are encouraged to purchase tickets and give them to students.
Tickets can be purchased the night of the event for $5.
