Marshall University Phi Kappa Phi Chapter

Spring 2015 Book Drive. Under the leadership of its student vice presidents (Shawn Cheeks, Bill Jones, Tuesday Moates-Simmons, and Danielle Ocheltree), Marshall's Chapter of Phi Kappa Phi partnered with the Honors College Student Association and the National Student Speech-Language-Hearing Association held a book drive to benefit St. John's House. An outreach of St. John's Episcopal Church, St. John's House has been operating in a government subsidized housing community in Huntington, WV for over 15 years. It offers an after-school program that provides meals and activities geared toward supporting children's social, emotional, and educational needs. Two Marshall University speech-language pathology graduate students coordinate its after-school activities, including provision of supplementary literacy instruction for all children in the housing community. We collected 302 books, 242 of which were children's books that went directly to the after-school program. The other 60 books were donated to St. John's Church Summer Reading Camp and the Marcum Terrace Family Resource Center.
