"Dancing with the Faculty” will raise money for one of Morehead State University’s newest student organization, SEED (Students Empowering Exceptional inDividuals), Tuesday, Nov. 12, at 7 p.m. in Button Auditorium. 

Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. 

The event will enlighten the campus community about the student organization which consists of successful MSU students who have various types of disabilities. 

SEED aims to mentor incoming freshman who have a disability to show them they can succeed in college. The mentee is partnered up with a mentor who has successfully completed one semester of college with a GPA of a 2.5 or higher. The mentor also has a similar disability to the one the mentee has. 

The group’s goal is to give advice and encouragement, while serving as role models to someone younger who might otherwise count him/herself out of going to college. 

Faculty and staff from various departments, will pair with students to choose their own style of dance and music. Currently, nine teams have registered. 

Advance tickets are $3 and can be purchased from Evangeline Day, disabilities service coordinator. 

On Monday, Nov. 11 and Tuesday, Nov. 12, SEED will sell advance tickets from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. on the second floor of the Adron Doran University Center. 

Faculty and staff, who cannot attend, are encouraged to purchase tickets and give them to students. 

Tickets can be purchased the night of the event for $5. 

Additional information is available by contacting SEED at seed.msu@gmail.com or Day at 606-783-5188.
