  • ECU Students & Faculty Provide Support for AHS

    Date: 12/14/16

Last year, members of East Central University's Student Oklahoma Education Association worked to provide over 75 Christmas gifts for Ada High School students.  This year, the group teamed with faculty members from the Department of Education as well as the Department of Kinesiology to collect clothing and to implement fundraisers to help ensure that high school students would receive gifts this holiday season.

"We appreciate the work that East Central University has done on behalf of our kids.  Many people realize the need for  elementary students to receive gifts during the holiday season, but often we forget that it is important that our older kids are remembered as well," said Paula Kedy, Executive Director of Academics for the Ada City Schools.  "The members of East Central's SOEA should be commended for their willingness to help us meet the needs of our students."

The Student Oklahoma Education Association is a pre-professional organization of undergraduate and graduate students who are currently preparing for careers in education.  The ECU Chapter of SOEA is known statewide for its willingness to  provide opportunities for students who are working to become Oklahoma's future teachers.

"I am thrilled that SOEA students are developing a real understanding of the needs that many of our students face.   It is gratifying to think that these college students will be our future teachers," said Kedy.
