The School of Social Work field Education department in collaboration with Grambling Housing Authority held an Easter Egg Hunt, Saturday afternoon, March 12 in the quad in front of Grambling Hall.
Children residing in the Housing Authority Complex and those throughout the Grambling and Ruston areas were invited to attend.
Over 75 parents and children were present. Members of Phi Beta Sigma and Paralegal/Legal Studies Association assisted children in finding eggs while members of the Masters of Social Work Organization distributed coloring books and crayons, children’s activity books, and goodie bags. Parents were given tips on how to help assist their children in reaching educational goals.
The event’s success was largely due to the hardwork and dedication of student volunteers and the numerous donations that were received.
Many individuals, departments and community leaders are to be commended for their time, dedication, civic contributions, said Dr. Mary Balthazar, MSW director.
Contributors for the hunt included Dr. Grace Tatum, Dr. Lula King, Dr. Marvin Arnold, Dr. Walter Davis, Calvin Williams, Jeremy Adams, Casandra Peoples, Luverne Junior, Phyllis Burton, Erika Thomas, Lakandra Davis, Laquita Crumwell, Tameka Lester, Tori Cloman, the MSW Organization, New Rocky Valley B.C., the Mentoring Program, and the School of Social Work.
