Momentun Continues

Nov. 28, 2018

During the past month, Ichabods Moving Forward presented to several different organizations around the Washburn community. In addition, Ichabods Moving Forward attended one of the volleyball games and Greek 101. We are thankful for the support we have received. Student organization presentations have been vital to gaining awareness and support around campus. We appreciate all the organizations that have welcomed our executive council to their meetings.

Thanks to the generosity of students and members of the Washburn campus, Ichabods Moving Forward has raised over $2,000 for the student emergency fund. We will begin distributing funds in January of 2019. The application for the emergency fund will be finalized and become available in the coming weeks.

Ichabods Moving Forward is preparing to add new members to the executive council in January of 2019. These new members will help to maintain momentum for the group as current members graduate. The new executive council will begin serving in January and will assist with projects throughout the following year.

Gaining Global Support

Ichabods Moving Forward is gaining support on and off campus. We are in the early stages of building our Student Emergency Fund and will be accepting applications for assistance in January 2019. One of our executive council members, Paul Mismaque, gained our first international donation! Paul is an international student from France. After Family Day, he followed up with his parents to ask why they decided to support Ichabods Moving Forward.

“Bonjour! On Family Day, I had the chance to donate to an organization at Washburn University that has provided my son with opportunities to help his fellow classmates. Ichabod’s Moving Forward is an amazing organization that I believe in because of the opportunities that it can provide for students who are facing difficult times.”

-Dominque Mismaque of Homblieres, Aisne in France

The Student Emergency Fund created by Ichabod’s Moving Forward will provide emergency assistance to students who are going through a temporary financial crisis. Washburn University is a community, together we can support students during the unexpected. Please take a moment to learn more about this organization and if you can, consider donating, the donations will support Ichabods throughout campus.

WUFest Success!

Ichabods Moving Forward students at WU Fest

September 4, 2018
By Colin Truhe

The executive committee of Ichabods Moving Forward would like to thank all the students who stopped by our table during the 2018 WUfest. We greatly appreciated you taking the time to learn more about our organization. Our goal for WUFest was to spread awareness about our organization with Washburn students. We were able to accomplish this by handing out buttons, flyers, candy and talking to students about Ichabods Moving Forward. The three executive committee members tabling were Makayla Vargo, Colin Truhe and Becca Nyman, and each found the night to be a huge success for the organization.

“I was really excited to be able to share our message with students and I feel good about how the night turned out. Everyone we talked to was super excited about Ichabods Moving Forward.” Nyman said. “I feel like we have an opportunity to make a positive impact on Washburn’s campus.”

Although still new to campus, we are excited about the potential of making an impact in students’ lives. As we continue to table and have events this fall, we will start collecting donations that will go into our student emergency fund which will become active in January of 2019.

Ichabods Moving Forward will be tabling at the Bowtie event on September 5 in the Washburn Room A/B. To learn more about Ichabods Moving Forward and how to donate, stop by our table between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. to talk with a committee member.
