Mortar Board Senior Honor Society to host book drive, competition

The Mortar Board Senior Honor Society’s philanthropy is “Reading is Leading,” and it encourages children to find joy in reading and use it as a skill. Its main event to promote it is a campus book drive.

This semester, it is having another book drive from Monday, April 3 to Thursday, April 14. The campus community can donate new or slightly used books at the Heskett Center, Shocker Hall, Shocker Dining Hall, Rhatigan Student Center, Ahlberg Hall or the Ablah Library. It is also hosting a competition for the book drive: The WSU student organization that donates the most books will receive $100 towards the group’s budget or philanthropy of choice. Officers or advisors of a WSU student organization that would like to register for the competition can contact Rachel Smith at: Emails should include the sender’s name, their position in the organization and the name of the organization.

Last semester, 282 books were donated by the WSU community to Minneha Elementary, and Mortar Board and Minneha are extremely grateful for the successful turn out.
