Brandon Hammond of State Fair Community College, Upward Bound Academic Advisor and Missouri Representative for Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska TRiO and Gear Up Professionals, recently took four face pies for a Fair Share fundraiser hosted by the chapter.
Upward Bound is one of the United States Department of Education’s TRiO programs.
The State of Missouri exceeded the goal of $ 65,000 by raising $ 89,000 for Fair Share.
Hammond had agreed to be hit with the pies if the goal was exceeded.
As the representative for Missouri, Hammond has been tasked with soliciting donations from institutions and members across the state for the Council of Opportunity in Education Fair Share program.
The Council of Opportunity in Education relies on institutional memberships, memberships and personal contributions as its primary source of operating income.
Equitable sharing is the sharing of the budgetary responsibility necessary for the functioning of the board based on the relative number of TRIO projects in a region.
