PEP RALLY and CAT WALK: Nov. 7
The new Bobcat Cheerleaders hosted a Pep Rally to celebrate the first Bobcat Basketball home games of the season. Captained by Shay Meyers and coached by Taylor Edenfield, the squad entertained the crowd with cheers, chants, and stunts before leading a large group of students on a “CatWalk” from Bobcat Villas to the EGSC gym to watch the exciting games. During halftime, the cheerleaders performed a dance choreographed by Health/PE instructor Johnna Eaton, and then surprised the crowd by giving out lots of EGSC prizes.
EGSCS BLOOD DRIVE and COOKOUT: Nov. 6 and 8
EGSC Statesboro students got a special treat on Nov. 8 when Director of Student Life Vicki Sherrod and Randy Canady from Plant Operations showed up on campus and had a cook out! The students enjoyed hot dogs and hamburgers, and had a great time playing volleyball, horseshoes, and cornhole outside on the grounds of the beautiful Statesboro Campus. Earlier in the week, EGSCS hosted and participated in an American Red Cross blood drive, and an impressive number of students, staff, and faculty came out to support a very worthy cause. Miss East Georgia State College Rachel Frederick was also on hand at the blood drive in support of her platform, the importance of blood donation.
STUDENTS V. STAFF/FACULTY CHARITY SOFTBALL GAME: Nov. 5
Monday, November 5th was a very exciting day for EGSC Staff and Faculty: that was the day the Faculty/Staff team finally beat the Students’ team in the annual “Don’t Let Cancer Steal 2nd Base” Charity Softball Game! While both teams showed a great deal of talent on the field, the students’ team just couldn’t stand up to Faculty/Staff standouts Blake Nation, Ashley Woods, Dr. Timothy Goodman, and several others. The fantastic night ended with a score of 17-15, and all proceeds collected at the game will go to charities that support and fund breast cancer research and awareness.
EGSC AMERICAN RED CROSS BLOOD DRIVE: Nov. 13
The EGSC family truly came together in a show of overwhelming support on Nov. 13 for the American Red Cross Blood Drive held in the gym, sponsored by Student Government Association. This is the most successful blood drive EGSC has hosted to date, with the end result being 136% of the pre-set goal! The blood collected during this drive is especially critical now, as there is a nationwide shortage of blood due in part to the cancellation of hundreds of blood drives along the East Coast in the wake of “Superstorm Sandy”. Thank you to everyone who participated, you have truly made a difference.
SGA’s FALL FESTIVAL: Nov. 14
Despite the cloudy weather and chill in the air, hundreds of EGSC students turned out for SGA’s first Fall Festival, held on the campus quad on November 14. Student Clubs and Organizations were asked to set up tables with games, activities, and prizes, and students had a blast participating in games like Football Toss, Musical Chairs, Pin the Tail on the Donkey, and even a Cake Walk. Craft stations were also set up for students to have their faces painted, decorate their own backpacks, or create their own tile coasters. A great time was had by all, and the SGA plans to make this an annual event.
