PTA Students Continue Tradition

Proceeds donated to the national Wounded Warrior Project

Students from the Kent State East Liverpool physical therapist assistant program observed National PTA Month by raising funds that were recently donated to the national Wounded Warrior Project.

The PTA students raised $500 through a basket raffle on campus and decided to direct the proceeds to the Wounded Warrior Project in honor of first-year student Jada Butler, a sergeant in the Army National Guard.

Each year, PTA students from the Kent East Liverpool campus find unique ways to increase awareness about their field, while raising funds for a worthwhile cause.

The Wounded Warrior Project is a military and veterans charity service organization that provides help to thousands of injured warriors and their families through the healing process.
