On December 18, 2013 the FIT Alumni Huntsville Chapter donated school supplies to Louis J. Morris Elementary School. The group collected an assortment of pens, pencils, paper, and binders for the young students. Principal Patty Boyd said she was “very glad to see someone in the academic community cared.”
Next year, the Huntsville Chapter plans to exceed the amount of supplies donated this year by 50%. James Bussey, President of Huntsville Alumni Chapter said, “the key behind our endeavors is to bring awareness of our university to the surrounding community. Based on our investigation of the community, only 1 out of 1000 know that our university even exists.” Their next outreach direction is to government and corporate entities in the surrounding area.
