National Recognition for "Paint the Paws"

President Jack Thomas, Vice President Brad Bainter '79 '83 and former adviser Cathy Onion were on hand to make the formal announcement to the WIU Student Alumni Leadership Council (SALC) that they received a national award in August. The "Paint the Paws" program won the 2013 Outstanding Tried and True Program from the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) Affiliated Student Advancement Programs' (ASAP) organization. Paws are painted up and down University Drive and Western Avenue prior to Homecoming as a way to lead alumni, students and fans to the football game on Homecoming each year. An official release is coming soon with further details regarding the award.
