Teacher Education understands importance of community

(12-19-2008)

The Adams State College Teacher Education Department continues to reach out to the community and provide assistance to others. For the second year in a row, the department has adopted a family for the Christmas season through the La Gente Project, a department of the San Luis Valley Board of Cooperative Educational Services.

The adopted family had five members, and the faculty and staff provided four gifts for each family member.

"Also, this year, our department filled Jinger Garcia's, La Gente project secretary, car twice with donated clothing," said Darneil Mackey, administrative assistant. "We still have our department white elephant gift exchange, but we have been giving to others rather than have a lavish party for ourselves."
