TRIO Day, the last Saturday of February each year, has been proclaimed a National Day of Service.
Lewis and Clark Community College will recognize the event on campus the day before this year, on Friday, Feb. 25. L&C’s TRIO Student Support Services will have information and refreshments available to students starting at 7:45 a.m. outside of Reid Restaurant on the college’s Godfrey campus.
According to the 1986 Congressional resolution, National TRIO Day is meant to focus the nation's attention on “the needs of disadvantaged young people and adults aspiring to improve their lives, to the necessary investment if they are to become contributing citizens of the country, and to the talent which will be wasted if that investment is not made.”
