Katrina Awareness Campaign starts here tonight

A University of St. Thomas Hurricane Katrina Awareness Campaign starts here tonight with a film and speaker. Tonight’s program is part of a broader effort that will include a trip by St. Thomas students next February to help with hurricane relief efforts.

Diana Noble, an amateur director and Minnesota relief worker, will speak at 7:30 p.m. tonight, Nov. 28, in Room 155, Murray-Herrick Campus Center. Noble has worked on dozens of tours in Louisiana as a civilian assisting with hurricane relief and restoration efforts.

All students are welcome to attend.

Tonight’s program is a prelude to Hurricane Katrina awareness events in February, including the relief and restoration trip by several dozen students over spring break.

Students interested in participating in the trip must attend tonight’s program as well as other information programs here in February.

The campaign is a cooperative effort of the All College Council and the Office of Institutional Diversity.
