Posted on January 6, 2011.

HIGH POINT, N.C., Jan. 6, 2011 – Students, faculty and staff in the Norcross Graduate School and the Evening Degree Program at High Point University took time out of their busy schedules to think of others during the Christmas season.

Staff in the graduate school adopted two children from the Salvation Army Angel Tree ? donating toys, clothing and books to help make Christmas brighter.

Students in the graduate school and the EDP donated canned and boxed food items for the Second Harvest Food bank. The students collected the items during holiday parties at both the High Point and Winston-Salem campuses.

“The staff felt it was important to focus on the community giving and with the help from our students were able to collect 1,364 pounds of donated food,” says Tracy Collum, associate dean of the Norcross Graduate School as well as the Evening Degree Program at High Point University. “The students really helped make a difference in many lives this season.”
