Abstract

Students in Nancy Prochaska's introductory business class at Kennesaw State University will host a festival for students at Belmont Hills Elementary School in Smyrna‚ April 17‚ 6:30−8:30 p.m. The Spring Fling festival includes games‚ hot dogs and drinks‚ a karate exhibition and a glimpse of a Hummer from the nearby Naval Air Station.



Belmont Hills Elementary is located off South Cobb Drive in southern Cobb County. Eighty percent of the students at Belmont Hills receive federal assistance for hot lunches and more than 60 percent do not have a permanent address. Because Belmont Hills has a diverse student population‚ translators will be on hand to assist parents and family members of students.



"We thought that this project would allow us to learn about business‚ interpersonal work‚ leadership and diversity. We're stepping across cultural lines with this‚ and I'm so excited to watch this unfold‚" says Prochaska.



Spring Fling is open to the public. Giselle Stone‚ the school's principal‚ wishes to bring the community to the school. Tickets are 25 cents each. Raffle tickets are available‚ and include prizes such as a dinner for two at the Hyatt Regency Hotel. All proceeds benefit Belmont Hills Elementary School's PTA.
