Forget the phrase, “No good deed goes unpunished”, because Valdosta State University NAACP’s hard work is definitely rewarded. Despite close speculation from local, state, and national levels, this student organization did not falter in their determination to impact their campus with various meetings, events, and new ideas. Several college chapters were in attendance at the 69th Annual Georgia NAACP State Convention September 30th-October 2nd, but VSU NAACP was distinguished from the rest, as chapter President, DeAndre Jones and his executive board members humbly received significant awards for their efforts. The first of these awards was the College Chapter of the Year Award. The required qualifications met included: 25 paid members, completed year-end financial and activity reports, activities sponsored by Education, Political Action, Public Relations, membership, and Employment committees. Also, monthly and executive mass meeting were required. The chapter also received the Southwest District Award and VSU NAACP’s Employment and Economic Empowerment chair, Paul Rosemond, was recognized as he VSU NAACP received Best Economic Empowerment Programming. VSU NAACP is not only proud to be the recipients of such dignified honors, but takes pleasure in being a credible student organization of leaders that their campus can count on at all levels.
