SUMMARY: CoB Faculty and staff collected school supplies for Rockingham and Augusta County schools.


As the new school year began, the College of Business gave back to local students by donating school supplies. Faculty and staff gathered items for two weeks and then sent the collection to three elementary schools in Rockingham and Augusta counties. “Teachers usually spend money out of their own pockets to supplement their classroom supplies – as often, what the school system allots for each class is not enough to last throughout the year.  These “school supply kits” were given in hopes of adding to teacher supply closets in order to help ensure that classes and students had what they needed” said Brooke Goolsby, Assistant to the Dean and Special Events Planner in the College of Business. Supplies were sent to Lacy Springs and Ottobine in Rockingham County and Winonah Elementary School in Waynesboro, VA.
