FRIDAY & SATURDAY OFFERS GREAT NEWS

Send your news reporters to the University on both Friday and Saturday to do a story on ASU winning first-place in the Home Depot contest and report on all of the awesome community spirit in the 100-plus local volunteers present in renovating ASU's Health Center to benefit its students on both Friday and Saturday at the Student Health Center; located on South Jackson St., which is beside ASU's Bibb Graves Hall.



HERE'S THE PLAN...

Here's the Plan: Refurbish the ASU Student Health Center's reception area, remove dilapidated cabinetry and install new ones, replace ceiling tiles, landscape and beautify the entry way and paint, paint, paint!



Come on both or either day (9 a.m. - 4 p.m.) and interview the national Home Depot officials who will be present with its trained professionals, and our 100-plus ASU local volunteers (students, staff, alumni, etc.) who will demolish the old clutter in the ASU Student Health Center on Friday; and on Saturday, refurbish and make it pristine; thus completing the renovation.

Then at 5 p.m. on Saturday, President Ross will conduct a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the Center.





SATURDAY @ 5 P.M RIBBON-CUTTING CEREMONY WITH PRESIDENT ROSS.

Send your reporters on Saturday at 5 p.m. as ASU's President Quinton T. Ross, Jr. presides over a ribbon-cutting ceremony in front of the newly renovated Student Health Center, which will mark the completion of two-day's of volunteer work, which is all thanks to winning Home Depot's nationwide "Retool Your School" contest and its $50,000 grant!
