Branch Events at University of Central Florida, Orlando


Lane, Callie, Childhood Education


A wonderful semester has been granted to the ACEI chapter of the University of Central Florida, Orlando! Fundraisers have transpired, workshops have been furnished, and international connections have been made.

We began the year by following ACEI's purpose to work for desirable conditions for all students, and so "adopted" the Karugo Primary School in Kenya. Karugo's main need was to bring electricity to their school, which is located a few hours north of Nairobi. In order to turn the lights on for their students, the building required electrical wiring to be installed at a cost of $1,500, after which they would be able to afford the monthly electric bill.

We began raising money by hosting a two-day bake sale in the beginning of the Fall 2007 semester and another in the Spring 2008. These fundraisers were held in the Teaching Academy building on the main UCF campus. Our customers were College of Education students and faculty who wanted to help us with this worthy cause. We raised $652! For our third fundraiser, we hosted a Scholastic Book Fair from October 8-11, 2007. It was a mutually beneficial event, as our colleagues purchased literature for their future classroom libraries. At this event, we raised $1,200! We are very appreciative of the support of our fellow classmates and faculty, who helped us raise a total of $1,852.00 for the Karugo Primary School!

The UCF-Orlando ACEI Branch also spread the vision of ACEI among faculty members during the Week of the Classroom Teacher. In order to appreciate the work of all faculty members at the College of Education, as well as inform all instructors and professors about our Branch, we created apple-shaped thank-you mementos bearing the message, "Thank you for educating America's future educators!
