Evansville, Ind. – The Ivy Tech Southwest Student Government Association (SGA) raised over $1,100 for its sister campus in Kokomo following a devastating tornado that severely damaged a classroom location for its nursing and health sciences program in August.
About 100 class sections that met in the Inventrek Building in Kokomo were impacted by the tornado.
Members of the Ivy Tech Southwest Student Government Association held a fundraiser in September to pool funds to send to Ivy Tech Kokomo to help students and the community recover from the tornado. The Ivy Tech Terre Haute campus also collected money and canned food to contribute to Kokomo.
“I feel that it is my responsibility as the president of the Ivy Tech Southwest SGA to meet the needs of all Ivy Tech students,” said John Hutchison, Ivy Tech Southwest Student Government Association President.
