”This is my first time doing Sing-O-Grams, said Ben. I enjoyed every bit of it.”

”This helped brighten up my day after this past week of snow,” said senior Terry Bowman.
The musical group has done many other engagements on campus to help bring the spirits up and they have more planned.
”This is just the beginning,” said Lauretta Avery president of SAI. “We have so much prepared for the campus and community. We hope to gain the same support we did on Valentine’s Day throughout the semester.”
