North Lake College's Honor Society Gives Back to Community with Project Graduation

IRVING, Texas. April 25, 2002 - On Thursday, May 9th at 7:00 p.m., North Lake College holds its annual graduation ceremony. This year, graduating students and their guests are asked to bring a non-perishable food item or children's book.

The North Lake honor society is participating in Project Graduation: Feed a Body, Feed a Mind. Project Graduation is an initiative sponsored by the national Phi Theta Kappa organization to help alleviate hunger and illiteracy in our community. Students are also collecting donations at the Student Programs & Resources office (SPAR - Room A-223) at the college. After the graduation ceremony, the donated books and canned goods will be given to several non-profit organizations through out the Irving Community.

"Such a simple gesture of bringing a canned good or book to our commencement ceremony will help improve the quality of life in our community," said Dr. Linda Coronado, North Lake College President. "We are excited to have this opportunity."
