SOU Softball Team Gives Back to CASA
Children who are serviced by the Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Jackson County will have a little more holiday cheer this year, thanks to the SOU Softball team. Each of the eighteen team members and the two coaches selected a name from the tree to give a gift, along with several others in the athletic department.
Coach Kim Fritts suggested the idea last year and the team embraced the opportunity to give back. "We go to the CASA building the day they give the gifts out and help wrap them for the families that have the kids in their homes," say Coach Fritts."My team and I know that we are very privileged and want to give back to those in need. I am always very proud of my girls."
