Dr. Raveenia Roberts-Hanna, Executive Director of the Institute, received the charter, and the officers and members, including student president Ashley Albury, were installed.The installation and mini-training session equipped the club’s members with the tools and information required to have a successful performance during their upcoming fiscal year while holding meaningful club meetings, activities and rendering altruistic service to the local community. The Kiwanis delegation came with a wealth of knowledge to impart and left with enthusiasm for their newest service club and a huge gift of appreciation from the Institute’s farm.For BAMSI’s leadership team, encouraging a heart for service and building a connection with surrounding communities is an important component in developing a well-rounded citizenry.
