Before heading off to vote Tuesday afternoon, Dr. Pollard stopped at the Student Life Office at the Germantown Campus. The Student Life Officers took part in an amazing initiative. The Smart Sacks initiative partners with the Manna Food Center, businesses and organizations, and elementary schools. Together, they provide children with backpacks full of kid-friendly food every Friday so they have food on the weekends when there are no school meals to sustain them.

The Smart Sacks program currently operates in more than 40 elementary schools, feeding nearly 1,400 children each week. Smart Sacks is a perfect example of how a community comes together to solve a problem.

Dr. Pollard also spoke about the inauguration, collegewide planning, a meeting with SEIU and the upcoming production of "The Happy Elf."
