MLK Weekend Projects: Making a" Day off" a "Weekend of Service

Cyclones were busy following Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. service guidance: Everyone can be great, because everyone can serve: http://www.thekingcenter.org/.

Aikman End Zone volunteers work with children with long hospital stays at Children Hospital. Thank you Mr. Reynolds for your support and supervision.

The World Neighbors YAC continued to plan the world hunger awareness banquet on Sunday. Marketing materials and final decision making were on their agenda. Thank to the Casady mothers who attended and to Mrs. April Millaway an Mrs. Carrie Hill who supervised it.

Mrs. Carmen Clay and Mrs. Mari Leslie, Nihon No Ajiwai volunteer, traveled to Dallas to learn from the Japan American Society of Dallas and Forth Worth New Year's celebration. Good contacts were made and some changes will be generated on the Taste of Japan program as a result of this field trip.

On Monday, MLK Day, Brittani Johnson'08, honored the memory of her uncle, Dr. Robbie Johnson, with the first united effort between two rivals schools in the sports fields: Heritage Hall High School (Charges) and Casady School (Cyclones). Dr. Robbie Johnson was an outstanding charger and his classmates Dr. Bill Bondurant, Kit Greene, Kurt McDowell and Casady's Mr. Richard Clements made Brittani's project possible. Charges and Cyclones packed 2,880 bags = 2880 Oklahoma kids will be feed thanks to the the Food-4-Kids Program and the Charger and Cyclone effort: http://www.regionalfoodbank.org/food4kids.php: "Food 4 Kids was established to help meet the needs of chronically hungry children in elementary schools. When we heard firsthand from a school principal that a student had passed out on a Monday morning due to a lack of food over the weekend it became evident something needed to be done."
