WINSTON-SALEM, NC – The Winston-Salem State University Department of Athletics will kick off the 2015-16 year with WSSU Rams Community Service Month, with its first event on Thursday, June 4th.
The WSSU Department of Athletics is coming off of its most successful community service year ever, where as a department, the Rams logged 3,461 hours of community service.
“Community Outreach is a focal point within the athletic department’s strategic initiatives”, says director of Athletics, Tonia Walker. “We have committed to our student-athletes and staff to a lofty goal of dedicating at least 3000 community service hours annually to the Winston-Salem Community at large”, Walker added. “We surpassed that number this past year, so we know it’s an attainable goal.”
“We simply want to make a difference in our community! I truly believe that volunteerism plays an important factor in fulfilling our responsibility to transform our student-athletes into productive citizens”, says Walker.
