Submitted by FMU Teaching Fellows
Recently, two of our sophomore Teaching Fellows traveled with FMU’s Honors program to New York City.
Katey Roberson and Anna Patton enjoyed Broadway shows, the Today Show, and everything else the “Big Apple” had to offer.
During the months of November and December, all of our Teaching Fellows collected donations for the Foster Care Clothing Closet’s Christmas party. Fellows brought in blankets, hot cocoa, mugs, and books to be used as gifts for local foster children.
On the day of the Christmas party, four Fellows decided to volunteer at the party. Sophomore Anna Patton and junior Shelly Smith helped the children complete arts and crafts. Alex Barber, a sophomore, assisted with games. Rian Avin, freshman and owner of We’ve Got Character, had her employees come to the party as Elmo, Mickey, and Anna from Frozen. Rian came as Elsa!
Rebecca Alexander, a freshman Teaching Fellow, volunteers every Wednesday at Sandhurst Church in Florence. She teaches a classroom of two and three year olds a Bible story and leads arts and crafts.
Sophomore Anna Patton was recently nominated to the Board of Executives for the Foster Care Clothing Closet in Florence, SC.
Teaching Fellows Assist with the “Cure for Collins” fundraiser!
When the Teaching Fellows at FMU heard about an employee’s two year old daughter battling leukemia, they knew they had to help! Our Fellows are assisting with the “Cure for Collins” fundraiser. They are selling BBQ tickets to Roger’s BBQ in Florence for March 7, 2017. From 4-7, FMU’s Teaching Fellows will be serving plates to help this precious child!
