The University of Texas at Brownsville and Texas Southmost College aspires to be recognized as the nation’s premier community university, dedicated to designing innovative processes to strengthen student learning and establish a culture of civic responsibility through community engagement.I invite you to celebrate MLK day by participating in the university’s Day of Service this Monday. Our Scorpion Scholars have planned a day of activities designed to strengthen communities, empower individuals and bridge barriers.
The event will kick off with donuts at Dean Porter Park’s large pavilion at 8 a.m. From there, teams led by our student organizations will disperse to 10 projects throughout the city including: repairing trails at Sabal Palm Grove Audubon Sanctuary, sprucing up a historic cemetery, immunizing Buena Vida residents, reading to families at the Brownsville Adult Literacy Center, promoting Brownsville’s plastic bag ban and participating in a campus clean up. We will reconvene at the park at 11:45 a.m. for a picnic lunch, a panel of speakers and the MLK fair.
