Just in time for Christmas, Candice Mace won an iPad Mini in the National Student Day contest, coordinated by college stores across America. Panola College Store Manager Jessica Pace presented the iPad to Mace on Thursday, Nov. 21.

National Student Day was created to recognize and promote social responsibility by college students.

“During 2013, more than 1,800 college stores, including Panola College Store, participated in celebrating and honoring student volunteers,” Pace said.

In conjunction with National Student Day, the National Association of College Stores (NACS) sponsored a nationwide contest where students were asked to promote a cause they believe in by sharing their stories of volunteerism.

Mace submitted an essay about her work with Extraordinary Woman/Uncommon Man, a program at Tatum High School that involves mentoring young people, supporting their academic and extracurricular success and encouraging them to make wise choices.

“”It’s just being involved in a young person’s life who may not have that person at home to be involved in their life,” Mace said. “It is really helping our community bond together and helping out our kids.”

Mace said Coach Andy Evans, Tatum ISD Athletic Director, started the Uncommon Man program, and it branched out into the Extraordinary Woman program. The project has also been adopted by other school districts.

College Store employees also celebrated National Student Day by designing and supplying postcards for Project Gratitude. Students were invited to write encouraging messages on the cards and to make donations that would be distributed to active and retired military service personnel. College Store employees partnered with the Student Government Association to implement Project Gratitude.
