Messy (But Fun) Fundraiser!

Written by Keelin Crotty

The Student Education Association (SEA) and Kappa Delta Pi (KDP) hosted the Annual SEA Fundraiser on Thursday October 25, 2018. All who attended the event had an amazing time socializing with peers and professors while getting their hands a little sticky in some whipped cream. That’s right, the SEA Fundraiser’s theme was “Pie your Professor.” Those who donated $2 received a plate of whipped cream and were able to pie a professor in the face. All donations and proceeds will go to the SEA’s Literacy Project and Exceptional Learner Event for Spring 2019.

Some of the professors who volunteered to be pied were Prof. Cunningham, Dr. She, Dr. Cummings, Dr. Hisrich, Dean Dermer, Dr. Harrington, Dr. Vujaklija, Dr. Sharp, Prof. Mahoney, and Dr. Thompson.

The SEA would like to thank all the professors who participated in the fundraiser, and all the students and faculty that made donations to SEA.

This event was organized by Aimee York (SEA Leader, Student), Hailey Czerwinski (SEA Leader, Student), Dr. Marsh (Early Childhood professor), Dr. Pennington (Elementary Education professor), and SEA/KDP Committee Chair, Dr. Katy E.
