Every year, Starr Commonwealth encourages our friends and family to give back during the holiday season. Some choose to adopt a family in need, while others make donations to nonprofit organizations that are near and dear to their hearts. This year, friends of Starr pitched in to create holiday baskets for all of the students on our Albion campus.
Starr Commonwealth is bringing some holiday cheer to the students on our Albion campus. This year, Jeff and Sharon Robinson of Olies Tree Farm, a former tree farm in the greater Albion-Marshall area, have donated a 30 foot tree, which will be lit up in the center of campus for everyone to enjoy through the beginning of the new year.
For the past several years, Starr Commonwealth has participated in Giving Tuesday – a global day of giving. Falling on November 27th, this day of generosity creates an opportunity for people to show their support for the organizations and causes that matter most to them, and to encourage their friends and family to follow their lead. As you consider which organizations you would like to share your support with this year, we hope that Starr will be one of them.
On Saturday, November 3rd, the first annual Wildcat Prowl 5K will be held on Starr’s Albion campus! Experience the beauty of our campus as you run through the trees and along traffic-free roads with this fun opportunity.
The Starr Alumni Association has been an asset for former students for many years, providing not only a network but an emotional support system for our youth after they leave our programs. While planning our Alumni Cookout, we had the opportunity to talk with two former presidents of the Alumni Association, Dr. Jim Pelt and Mr. George Wilson, about their dedication to Starr and what the Alumni Association means to them.
