NEO Press Releases


It’s that time again… the students of Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College (NEO), want to give back in a big way. On Tuesday, April 22, NEO will host The Big Event, which is a student-led community service project. This one-day event is an occasion for the students of NEO to express their gratitude to the community for its support of the college. Students will be available throughout the course of the day to perform tasks such as yard work, painting, housework and other common household tasks.

‘One BIG day, one BIG thanks, one BIG Event.’  Residents are asked to fill out a job request form that can be picked in the Student Center in the Student Union. Applications can also be found online at https://spreadsheets.google.com/viewform?formkey=dDg2b1VSMmxHU2NPZE5Ld2FGY3p0MlE6MA 

The job request forms deadline is on Tuesday, April 15.

Residents need to provide the materials for each job. Students will complete jobs like yard work, painting, cleaning, organizing, etc. Community members wanting to have workers must have all necessary supplies to get the job done. NEO will supply only the workers!

“It's a day for students to give back to the community and say thanks,” said Event Coordinator Lisa Bell. “Students will volunteer to do community service as their schedule allows throughout the day.”

Since students will be transporting themselves to and from locations, NEO asks that the job sites be no more than 30 minutes from campus.

The BIG Event will take place Tuesday, April 22, 2014 from approximately 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. Students will work until every job is finished. After applications are submitted, applicants will receive a call letting them know who will be coming to work and when they will arrive.
