Letter From The President

Morgan Franklin

Dear BSA Family,

Thank you to the 150 people that attended our First General Body Meeting of the year, and thank you to the 500+ people that came out to our Annual Back to School Carnival! I'm very proud to say that this week was a success! Class of 2017, I hope to see more of you throughout this next week at some of our events! Please make sure you take a couple of minutes to fill out the mentor and mentee forms that are now shorter and faster to fill out! We have pushed our mentor / mentee matching back to Tuesday September 10th to give you all time to fill out the form. I hope you all have a great week and make it out to our First Friday of the year this friday!
