- SSMI School Supply Service Initiative - In the spirit of Tarleton’s Core Values, the division of Student Success and Multicultural Initiatives coordinated a school supply donation campaign for one of the Upward Bound target schools. The idea for the school supply project originated in the Office of Diversity and Inclusion as a part of Hunger Awareness month with the idea to collect much needed school supplies for local schools who were Hungry for Education. SSMI provided school supply drop boxes in various campus locations where dozens of generous Tarleton students and staff donated everything from pens and pencils to notebooks. Several boxes full of school supplies were delivered to Lingleville ISD students on April 2nd. Students and staff at the school were excited to have some new school supplies to get them through the rest of the school year. SSMI would like to thank all of the students and staff who donated to this educational community service project.
