In support of the September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance, EngageAR AmeriCorps awarded a grant to SAU+VISTA to join in patriotic acts of service. September 11thwas designated a National Day of Service by Congress in 2009 and is led by the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS). EngageAR is a unit of the Arkansas Division of Higher Education within the Arkansas Department of Education.
“September 11th is a day of history, emotion, and reflection,” said Dr. Katherine Berry, director of the SAU+VISTA AmeriCorps program as well as SAU’s First Lady and interim director of the new Ed.D. Program in the College of Education. “For many Americans it is also a day of service that provides an opportunity for citizens to put into action a shared belief that by serving our neighbors we can make our country stronger and better for decades to come while we honor those who lost their lives in 2001 and those who rose in service to our country.” (more…)
