SOS Adds Over 100 New Members for 2011-12

Sept. 23, 2011

On Sunday, September 18, the Solid Orange Squad concluded its new member recruitment process with the annual membership orientation meeting. Nearly 30 members of SOS met to learn about the program and its values, as well as discuss ideas for the upcoming year. The discussion revolved around recruitment, activities for the assembly program and new leaders for the program’s different components.

In its fifth year, the Solid Orange Squad has over 100 new members in addition to returning members. At the meeting, some of the organization’s veterans stepped up to take on leadership roles for T.I.G.E.R! Talk (the e-mail buddy program), the newspaper, the spring Be a T.I.G.E.R! Field Day and T.I.G.E.R! Read (the book club and newest component to the program).

Nearly everyone in attendance at the meeting volunteered to participate in either a leadership role or on a committee, demonstrating the dedication that this group of student-athletes has to serving the community and setting an example for children at local schools.

In the following weeks, SOS will be visiting Westminster Elementary School and the Pickens County Board of Disabilities to talk about the characteristics of a T.I.G.E.R!: Teamwork, Integrity, Gratitude, Education and Respect.
