Honor Society


Please join us for the Second Annual CHI Pi STTI Sunset Glow Walk and Talk for Charity!

Put on your walking shoes!  On October 19th, STTI's Chi PI chapter will be hosting their Second Annual Sunset Glow Walk and Talk for Charity! 

Enjoy a chat with friends, family, faculty and staff while supporting The Pantry at Big Creek Missions.  Last year, despite the rainy weather, we raised $900, plus over $100 worth of food. The Chi Pi chapter matched the monetary donation, for a final donation of $1800!  According to Mary Lewis, the director of The Pantry, this will buy at least 12 pallets of food, to be distributed among the 1000 families that The Pantry serves monthly. 

This feature event will occur at the Leslie County High School track at 8:30 pm on Thursday October 19th!  Feel free to wear and/or bring items that glow in the dark!  Some items will be provided. 

Walk a mile or more if you wish! 

The cost to join this fun, relaxing event will be only $10.00 (cash only, please) OR two non-perishable food items!  All monetary donations are tax deductible. Receipts will be provided upon request. 

Come join the fun! Support the local Leslie County community while you are in town for Faculty Meeting and 2017 graduation! Bring your friends and relatives! 

If you can't make it for the walk, the Chi PI Chapter of STTI will still accept any non-perishable food items or money that you wish to donate.  You may bring any donations to the STTI table at the graduation ceremony. All proceeds will go directly to support The Pantry at Big Creek Missions.
