Clubs and Organizations


APPLE Club – by Dr. Lela Hale
Dr. Sherry Childers and Dr. Lela Hale, advisors for one of the Department of Education clubs on campus, are elated about the APPLEs (the Association of People Preparing for Leadership in Education). The purpose of APPLEs is threefold—complementing classroom instruction, enhancing professional growth through the development of leadership skills, and developing social interaction among future educators. Membership is open for students enrolled in education classes. Students may also choose to join one of the two education associations, the Mississippi Association of Educators-Student Program (MAE-SP) or the Mississippi Professional Educators (MPE). Both groups elect officers who work collaboratively toward the common goals of the club. All future educators are invited for fellowship with the APPLEs in the Student Union Building on club meeting days. Remember, “Millions saw the apple fall, but Newton was the one who asked, ‘Why?’” Bernard M. Baruch.
