Meredith organizations serve the community
by Marsha Tutor
The fall semester has been
filled with numerous service projects
by Meredith clubs and committees.
Some of the service projects include; a
Halloween carnival, a canned food
drive, visiting the Tammy Lynn Cen
ter, and many more. Meredith stu
dents are hard at work not only in their
academics, but also in their service
The Phis Club of Meredith,
with President Christy Odom, recently
visited the Tammy Lynn Center, a resi
dence and school for children with
physical disabilities. During their visit,
the club members helped the children
decorate pumpkins with paint and glit
ter. The Phis also spent time talking
and interacting with the children
through games and storybooks. The
Plus Club and the children had an
extremely exciting day.
The Stringfield Hall Service
Committee, headed by Amy Hester
and Karen Edwards, held a Halloween
carnival on Thurs., Oct. 27. The carni
val lasted from 6-8 p.m. and ran with
the help of Jenny Lewis, Meredith
Walker, and other first floor residents.
First floor Stringfield hall dues helped
pay for the carnival, and the residents
contributed small prizes for the kids.
About 15 to 20 kids from the Salvation
Army and children of the faculty at
tended the carnival. The carnival
games included: “Cauldron Toss,"
“Candy Com Guess," “Go Fish," and “
Velcro Halloween Toss.” Both Amy
Hester and Jenny Lewis agree that the
carnival was a success, but hope that
next year more children will attend.

Students learned about the wide
variety of jobs that are available in the
business world and, as one student
said, a career “does not have to rail
road you because careers can branch
out.” The panel stressed the need for
people to be happy with their jobs,
More people attended the MAPS
sessions this time than the one held in
the spring, said Highsmith. For future
sessions, the sponsors are trying to
meet the needs of the students by
providing more convenient times for
students to attend more than one ses
sion. In addition, they would like to
provide more of an opportunity for
students to mingle with the panel.
“There is something special about
watching the alumnae with the stu
dents,” said Highsmith. “They remem
