NAACP has strong start to fall semester

NAACP President NaKiyah Scott started the fall semester off strong for her organization with events. 

As new students on campus are looking to get involved in a lot of organizations and groups on campus Scott knew exactly what to do — to show open arms. 

The NAACP held an “Meet the E-Board” and “Virtual Membership Drive.” 

Scott’s focus was to get students more comfortable with getting more involved in campus organizations. 

The “Virtual Membership Drive” was an event to speak on what NAACP does and what it requires. 

The NAACP was able to grab a lot of attention with students hungering to join the organization. 

“We are anticipating adding more members to our organizations, we got a lot of feedback,” Scott said. “We are excited to get the ball rolling and making our mark in Grambling State University.” 

Also, an Instagram Live event was held to meet and get to know the Executive Board. 

Altogether it has been a good outcome thus far. 

The NAACP was able to get out, get noticed, and gain some new members. 

The NAACP is a national organization of which Scott said she is very thankful to have a chapter on Grambling’s campus. 

“It was important to have our face put to our name, so we are not complete strangers,” Scott said.
