Bake Sale Held to Benefit Schistosomiasis Control Initiative

The business administration and accounting club and the economics club on Dec. 3-4 held a bake sale in Morlan Hall. The more than $100 raised by the clubs will go to the Schistosomiasis Control Initiative, which is a charitable organization  that treats young children in sub-Saharan Africa for parasitic worms that can cause anemia and even long-term developmental problems. It only takes $5 for them to protect a child for 10 years.

The students involved in the bake sale were Amber Ridings, Jared Roque, Allison Snyder, Cameron Cooper, Alexander Tyre, Peter Franklin, Evan Sargo, Kelly Becquet and Johntel Coleman.
