Scout University needs your help
Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts from across Arkansas, Tennessee and Missouri will be coming to ASU on Saturday, Oct. 2, to participate in Scout University 2004. However, due to lack of involvement for workshops thus far, Scout University is in danger of being cancelled. Faculty and staff are invited to share their expertise with these young women and men. If you would be interested in teaching a badge workshop, please contact Dawn Tucker at 972-3362 or via email at If you don't have a particular badge you would like to teach, but are interested in helping, your assistance is still needed. You can be matched with your interest areas. This is a great opportunity to showcase all the talent at ASU as well as helping to recruit future students.
