Treat Yourself and the Children's Miracle Network

Treat Yourself and the Children's Miracle Network

When you treat yourself to a Dairy Queen blizzard this Thursday, you're also treating the Children's Miracle Network.

Thursday marks Miracle Treat Day, a day where at least a dollar from every blizzard will go to Children's Miracle Network, according to a release.

Last year nationwide and in Canada, the fundraiser brought almost $5 million to Children's Miracle Network hospitals.

The Children's Hospital of the Medical Center of Central Georgia is a member of the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.

Nigerian Lawmakers Seek Fort Valley University for Agriculture Advice

Nigerian political officials searching for methods to improve food production are seeking solutions from Fort Valley State University.

As a part of an eight-day U.S. tour, political officials representing the Cross River State located in Nigeria will visit campus June 20, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The tour will begin at the C.W. Pettigrew Farm and Community Life Center. During their visit, officials are scheduled to listen to a presentation about the role and impact of the Sustainable Agricultural Research and Education (SARE) program. They will also tour FVSU’s College of Agriculture facilities.

James Hill, FVSU’s 1890 land-grant university liaison for the SARE program, said the purpose of the visit is to expose the officials to the SARE program, a U.S. Department of Agriculture funded program that offers grants and provides education.
