Students Express Appreciation Through Big Blue Thank You
LEXINGTON, Ky. (Nov. 7, 2016) — In this season of thanksgiving, the University of Kentucky Parent and Family Association has created an opportunity for students to express appreciation to their loved ones through Big Blue Thank You.
On Nov. 9 and Nov. 10, the Parent and Family Association staff will provide students with note cards, pens and refreshments, so they can write a thank you note to a parent, family member or mentor who has helped them succeed at UK.
Tables on the first floor of the White Hall Classroom Building will be staffed 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. this Wednesday and Thursday. Sealed, addressed letters left with Parent and Family Association staff will be mailed at no charge to students.
“This has become a fun Thanksgiving tradition at UK,” said Nicki Jenkins, assistant director in the Office of New Student and Family Programs. “We hope that students take advantage of the opportunity to express their gratitude to those who mean the most to them and who have supported them with their college dreams and goals. The UK Parent and Family Association is here to support the relationship between students and their families, and this is one simple way for us to do just that.”
