HUSSHA Recap – 2018-2019 by Alexa Capiro

The  Harding University Speech-language Hearing Association, HUSSHA, has continued to be an active light on Harding University’s campus and in the town of Searcy. The members of HUSSHA have actively served the community in a variety of ways this school year.  HUSSHA has participated in many activities such as Relay for Life, Aspie Awesome Nights, Polar Plunge, Autism Awareness, and Bisons for Christ. In Relay For Life, HUSSHA raised money for the American Cancer Society by setting up a fun 1950’s themed diner booth and camped out all night selling baked goods. Aspie Awesome, a local non-profit organization supporting families of individuals with autism,  is another area where HUSSHA members serve.   Members are involved in providing lessons and games for children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) while their parents can attend a meeting to learn more about ASD. These nights are special for the members of HUSSHA and are always fun and educational. In addition,  some  group members participated in the annual Special Olympics Polar Plunge.  HUSSHA members joined with members of other Harding  groups to plunge into the cold winter waters to support Special Olympics.  Other members stayed warm and provided muffins and drink for those who were plunging.

HUSSHA has a whole committee dedicated to Autism Awareness. Thus far we have raised awareness and acceptance by selling custom made t-shirts, buttons, doughnuts and of course by lighting up the Swaid Center for Health Sciences and the clock tower blue.

Last but not least, HUSSHA participated in this year  s Bisons for Christ event by washing windows and cleaning up the grounds at Curtis Kindergarten School. Several members of HUSSHA showed up to serve with ready hands and feet. The members of HUSSHA are thankful for all the opportunities to serve our profession, community, university and God’s Kingdom.
