Project IMPACT to Make Trip to 66WESTFest in Weatherford

The SWOSU Black Student Association’s Project IMPACT mentor initiative will soon facilitate its second event for students from the Eastside Academy in Clinton.

Members of the BSA will take students to 66WESTFest this Saturday, April 12, for a day of fun, games and treats at the Pioneer Cellular Event Center in Weatherford. Life Fellowship Church will provide its vans to aid in the transport of students, and the SWOSU Dean of Students office will donate pizza for the children’s lunch. The children will get to enjoy a free 12 noon concert featuring Grammy Award winning Sugar Free Allstars. The concert is open to everyone.

Project manager Alfa Abame said IMPACT stands for initiate, mentor, progress, accountability, compassion and teach. The BSA hopes to create a positive atmosphere that will foster feelings of self-worth and progressive, compassionate leaders of tomorrow. BSA members volunteer weekly at the Eastside Academy.
