Our START program has set ongoing community outreach in motion. Dr. Beth Keller’s (English) project continues to help Mad Anthonys Children’s Hope House. After students recorded public service announcements at Federated Media, 3Rivers Federal Credit Union funded the PSAs to broadcast on 97.3 WMEE for one year.
The student-created PSAs are currently on the air! Listen to WMEE live online. Students also created other promotional materials such as fliers, infographics, brochures, and postcards. Here are some of the designs:
Keller plans to continue working with the Hope House for at least another year. She wants to help collect and assess data related to making a larger Hope House presence in Fort Wayne. This work will include students from the Project Management for Writers course Keller is teaching in spring 2019. She received the 2018-19 Purdue Scholarship of Engagement Fellowship to help with funding. We will continue to follow Dr. Keller’s dedication to this great local organization.
