Students sign thank-you cards for veterans

Event part of 9/11 Week of Service


The Carolina Service Council kicked off a week of service in honor of the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks by writing thank-you cards for soldiers Monday on Greene Street.


CSC members expected to have at least 100 cards signed by Monday afternoon.


"I think sometimes being a serviceman might be somewhat of a thankless job, so I think it's important to make sure that we show our appreciation to those that have fought for our country and provided service to us," said fourth-year marketing and management student Cheslie Kryst, director of public relations for CSC.


Other CSC events for the week include a service project with Midlands Technical College students Tuesday at Lexington Interfaith Community Services and the Burton Center, a dialogue focused on the 9/11 attacks on Thursday and a service project at Transitions homeless shelter on Friday.


The CSC will hold an interest meeting at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the Honors Residence Hall in room B110. More information about the CSC and its 9/11 week of service opportunities can be found at
