Students act out the children’s book The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything.

The first service event that day was the Annual Westgate Spooky Trail. Honors students coordinated games, told stories, and performed music for the students at Westgate Elementary and other children with learning disabilities in Escambia County. It was a very rewarding

That same afternoon, Honors students helped run booths and coordinate events at the Cordova Elementary Fall Festival. This too was both beneficial to the Honors students and the students of Cordova Elementary.  The elementary students had a lot of fun with the activities provided. Honors students also learned a thing or two about handling younger kids, as well as their parents.
