The first annual MLK Day of Service at MSOE was a HUGE success! To better meet the needs of our students, the office of Servant-Leadership brought the opportunity to participate in various service activities to campus on this national holiday. Together, with the help of Circle K, Lambda Zeta Nu Sorority and the MSOE Bookstore, students honored Dr. King by crafting cards of appreciation to those who serve our country, writing inspirational notes to women battling breast cancer, passing on their words of wisdom to prospective students and packing school supplies to donate to kindergarten students Milwaukee Math and Science Academy. Hundreds of MSOE students participated in this student-led activity which allowed them to practice their humanity in a way that fit into their busy academic schedule.
During the two weeks leading up to this event, the MSOE Bookstore made it easy for students, faculty and staff to purchase school supplies to donate to kindergarteners in Milwaukee Public Schools. Ultimately, we reached our goal to compile 100 bags for the next generation of STEM students at the Milwaukee Math and Science Academy. Later this month, student leaders will deliver these supplies to the children and their teachers. Thank you to everyone who contributed to the success of this event!
