WEEKLY CAMPUS ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR MARCH 16 – MARCH 20
By Katie Jacobson, writer
FEATHER IN NYC
Feather editors are currently in New York City for the Columbia Scholastic Press Association Conference. Keep checking back for articles, Tweets, and Instagram posts.
Recently, one of our Alumni was in an horrific car accident. Emily Krieghoff was rushed to Community Hospital where if it wasn’t for the grace of God, the surgeons hands, and pints of blood she would not have survived. We are so grateful to the Lord that she is recovering and getting stronger each day. At Fresno Christian we would like to support Emily as well as give back to the Central California Blood Center for their help in saving Emily.
On March 20th from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., there will be a blood drive on Fresno Christian’s campus in honor of Emily. While there, people can sign prayers and well wishes to Emily and take an opportunity to save lives with your donations. You can drop in during the above times or email firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment.
