Although SHSU has been closed for the weekend, and classes are cancelled for (at least) tomorrow, LEAP Ambassadors found ways to be productive.
Saturday night involved extensive scrapbooking, a task that we undertake 2-3 times a year to catalog our 140 or so events per year. There was a festive aspect to this, inasmuch as several LEAP ambassadors had birthdays this month. Because many of our members are Hispanic, we had tortas, tres leches, and horchata, along with feaux-Mexican decorations.
But we also got work done, cataloging events from January through July, events consisting of a presidential inauguration, a visit from the Texas Supreme Court, travel throughout the Gulf Coast Region, book-signings, and various volunteer events.
That productivity was repeated on Sunday morning, even as Huntsville, TX was flooding.
We hunkered down at Stephanie’s house, with our “team mom” offering a menu of egg-related options.
And, again, we undertook a three-hour planning session for the fall semester’s events.
Our fall schedule includes a trip to Austin, a trip to Washington, DC, and a trip to Caddo Lake. It also includes volunteerism for non-profits and city offices. And, of course, it includes our normal retinue of film showings, guest speakers, multi-week programming, Moot Court, and other educational opportunities!
