A team of Clayton State University students and faculty recently joined in the “Every Life Deserves Hope” campaign to bring awareness to the AIDS epidemic by walking in the 20th Annual AIDS Walk Atlanta and 5K Run in Piedmont Park.
The Clayton State team was created through the Department of Campus Life to bring all student organizations, academic departments, faculty members and individual students together in support of this effort under the team name of Clayton State University. With More than 70 team members, the Clayton State University team exceeded its donation goal by contributing $668 to AIDS Walk Atlanta for continued clinical research for treatment and medications, prevention education, and mental health service to help thousands of families, neighbors and friends living with, affected by, and at-risk for HIV/AIDS in Atlanta.
Members of the Clayton State University team included the Department of Campus Life staff; Department of Arts and Sciences faculty; School of Nursing students; AmeriCorps National Service team; Campus Events Council; Student Government Association; and members of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc; Alpha Kappa Lambda Fraternity; Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc; Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc; Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc; Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc; Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc; and Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc.
Campus Life extends its congratulations to Dr. Lisa Keele, Philosophy faculty member from the College of Arts and Sciences for raising the most money for the Clayton State University team.
“Thank you, Clayton State, for being civically engaged and actively involved in urgent community needs and causes,” says Natasha Hutson, assistant director of Campus Life.
