MESSAGE FROM TERRY HAM
I want to be able to announce how much (with a $ amount) Texas student councils donated in terms of food, clothing, blood, hours to our communities this year. Please send in that total for your district. Also, I want to be able to say specifically how much was given to victims of wild fires if possible since that was a special call this year. If you had schools in your district that were fire victims, would you see if they can give you a total of what they received. If I look at what stuco’s report as donated and what schools say they received, I can piece together a pretty good picture of what was given.
Also, Ann Postlewaite from Minnesota is making a presentation on community service provided by student councils at the California Association of Directors of Activities. I would like to give her our totals to include. I also want to report them to NASC for their newsletter and Facebook page.
Please remind folks in your district about the sample press releases on the TASC website. I have one there for Advanced Workshops. It would be really simple to take one of those and adapt it for your events. PR is a good thing!
If you have not done your membership drive, perhaps you could have a list and ask every school at your spring conference or your project verification to contact one school that is not a member.
