  • There is a presentation at ATSU called “Care in the Syrian Crisis Zone” on April 20th at 5 p.m. in the Meghegan Hall. They want you to RSVP for the event (available on Facebook – should be able to use the title of the event to find it on FB). There is a reception and art show following at 6:30 p.m. Here is the FB link for the event: https://www.facebook.com/events/1006588559470049/


  • Baby Theo is doing well – he is two weeks old, can hold his head up a little bit, and is easy-going (which is appreciated by his tired parents :). Avery is adjusting well too – he likes being a big brother.
    • Thanks for your support and well-wishes!


Dr. Clark:

Keep thinking about how SPHA can raise money for students to attend ASHA in October.

If possible, SPHA should have AT LEAST 1 team (if not 2) in the ABC (Anything But Clothes) Fashion Show.  PLEASE volunteer to do this!  You are primarily HES majors and should be having fun and supporting Environmental causes & Sustainability.

TALK to Sydney Gosick about it!!
