MLK Center Sock and Glove Drive
In order to honor Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week, the Martin Luther King Center will host a Sock and Glove Drive throughout the month of November and December. Please donate new or gently used socks or gloves to the Martin Luther King Center, Funkhouser room 217, or Student Support Services located in the Alumni Gym. The Sock and Glove Drive is a great opportunity for all to support Lexington community members struggling with hunger and homelessness.
SSS Student Spotlight
Bethany Atkins is a senior Social Work major here at UK. She is also a mentor for Student Support Services for the last two years. Ms. Atkins dreamed of traveling abroad to England & got the opportunity this past year to go. She found the experience liberating and solidified a budding independence in her that would not have been found if she had never gone. Advice that Ms. Atkins gives all students, "When you get the opportunity to travel abroad...Take it!"
Ms. Atkins will be graduating from UK and continuing her studies in Social Work in pursuit of her Masters of Social Work and Licensed Social Worker.
